*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@11572
     8
wenzelm@11842
     9
* greatly simplified document preparation setup, including more
wenzelm@11842
    10
graceful interpretation of isatool usedir -i/-d/-D options, and more
wenzelm@11842
    11
instructive isatool mkdir; users should basically be able to get
wenzelm@11842
    12
started with "isatool mkdir Test && isatool make";
wenzelm@11842
    13
wenzelm@11842
    14
* theory dependency graph may now be incorporated into documents;
wenzelm@11842
    15
isatool usedir -g true will produce session_graph.eps/.pdf for use
wenzelm@11842
    16
with \includegraphics of LaTeX;
wenzelm@11842
    17
wenzelm@11864
    18
* proper spacing of consecutive markup elements, especially text
wenzelm@11864
    19
blocks after section headings;
wenzelm@11864
    20
wenzelm@11572
    21
* support bold style (for single symbols only), input syntax is like
wenzelm@11572
    22
this: "\<^bold>\<alpha>" or "\<^bold>A";
wenzelm@11572
    23
wenzelm@11814
    24
* \<bullet> is now output as bold \cdot by default, which looks much
wenzelm@11572
    25
better in printed text;
wenzelm@11572
    26
wenzelm@11712
    27
* added default LaTeX bindings for \<tturnstile> and \<TTurnstile>;
wenzelm@11712
    28
note that these symbols are currently unavailable in Proof General /
wenzelm@11712
    29
X-Symbol;

*** Isar ***
wenzelm@11633
    33
wenzelm@12312
    34
* Pure/Provers: improved proof by cases and induction;
wenzelm@12280
    35
  - 'case' command admits impromptu naming of parameters (such as
wenzelm@12280
    36
    "case (Suc n)");
wenzelm@12280
    37
  - 'induct' method divinates rule instantiation from the inductive
wenzelm@12280
    38
    claim; no longer requires excessive ?P bindings for proper
wenzelm@12280
    39
    instantiation of cases;
wenzelm@12280
    40
  - 'induct' method properly enumerates all possibilities of set/type
wenzelm@12280
    41
    rules; as a consequence facts may be also passed through *type*
wenzelm@12280
    42
    rules without further ado;
wenzelm@12280
    43
  - 'induct' method now derives symbolic cases from the *rulified*
wenzelm@12280
    44
    rule (before it used to rulify cases stemming from the internal
wenzelm@12280
    45
    atomized version); this means that the context of a non-atomic
wenzelm@12280
    46
    statement becomes is included in the hypothesis, avoiding the
wenzelm@12280
    47
    slightly cumbersome show "PROP ?case" form;
wenzelm@12280
    48
  - 'induct' may now use elim-style induction rules without chaining
wenzelm@12280
    49
    facts, using ``missing'' premises from the goal state; this allows
wenzelm@12280
    50
    rules stemming from inductive sets to be applied in unstructured
wenzelm@12280
    51
    scripts, while still benefitting from proper handling of non-atomic
wenzelm@12280
    52
    statements; NB: major inductive premises need to be put first, all
wenzelm@12280
    53
    the rest of the goal is passed through the induction;
wenzelm@12280
    54
  - 'induct' proper support for mutual induction involving non-atomic
wenzelm@12280
    55
    rule statements (uses the new concept of simultaneous goals, see
wenzelm@12280
    56
    below);
wenzelm@11995
    57
  - removed obsolete "(simplified)" and "(stripped)" options of methods;
wenzelm@11995
    58
  - added 'print_induct_rules' (covered by help item in Proof General > 3.3);
wenzelm@11995
    59
  - moved induct/cases attributes to Pure, methods to Provers;
wenzelm@11995
    60
  - generic method setup instantiated for FOL and HOL;
wenzelm@11986
    61
wenzelm@12163
    62
* Pure: support multiple simultaneous goal statements, for example
wenzelm@12163
    63
"have a: A and b: B" (same for 'theorem' etc.); being a pure
wenzelm@12163
    64
meta-level mechanism, this acts as if several individual goals had
wenzelm@12163
    65
been stated separately; in particular common proof methods need to be
wenzelm@12163
    66
repeated in order to cover all claims; note that a single elimination
wenzelm@12163
    67
step is *not* sufficient to establish the two conjunctions, so this
wenzelm@12163
    68
fails:
wenzelm@12163
    69
wenzelm@12163
    70
  assume "A & B" then have A and B ..   (*".." fails*)
wenzelm@12163
    71
wenzelm@12163
    72
better use "obtain" in situations as above; alternative refer to
wenzelm@12163
    73
multi-step methods like 'auto', 'simp_all', 'blast+' etc.;
wenzelm@12163
    74
wenzelm@12078
    75
* Pure: proper integration with ``locales''; unlike the original
wenzelm@12210
    76
version by Florian Kammüller, Isar locales package high-level proof
wenzelm@12078
    77
contexts rather than raw logical ones (e.g. we admit to include
wenzelm@12280
    78
attributes everywhere); operations on locales include merge and
wenzelm@12280
    79
rename; e.g. see HOL/ex/Locales.thy;
wenzelm@12078
    80
wenzelm@12078
    81
* Pure: theory goals now support ad-hoc contexts, which are discharged
wenzelm@12078
    82
in the result, as in ``lemma (assumes A and B) K: A .''; syntax
wenzelm@12078
    83
coincides with that of a locale body;
wenzelm@12078
    84
wenzelm@11722
    85
* Pure: renamed "antecedent" case to "rule_context";
wenzelm@11722
    86
wenzelm@11738
    87
* Pure: added 'corollary' command;
wenzelm@11738
    88
wenzelm@11722
    89
* Pure: fixed 'token_translation' command;
wenzelm@11722
    90
wenzelm@11899
    91
* Pure: removed obsolete 'exported' attribute;
wenzelm@11899
    92
wenzelm@11933
    93
* Pure: dummy pattern "_" in is/let is now automatically lifted over
wenzelm@11933
    94
bound variables: "ALL x. P x --> Q x" (is "ALL x. _ --> ?C x")
wenzelm@11899
    95
supersedes more cumbersome ... (is "ALL x. _ x --> ?C x");
wenzelm@11899
    96
wenzelm@11952
    97
* Pure: method 'atomize' presents local goal premises as object-level
wenzelm@11952
    98
statements (atomic meta-level propositions); setup controlled via
wenzelm@11952
    99
rewrite rules declarations of 'atomize' attribute; example
wenzelm@11952
   100
application: 'induct' method with proper rule statements in improper
wenzelm@11952
   101
proof *scripts*;
wenzelm@11952
   102
wenzelm@12106
   103
* Pure: emulation of instantiation tactics (rule_tac, cut_tac, etc.)
wenzelm@12106
   104
now consider the syntactic context of assumptions, giving a better
wenzelm@12106
   105
chance to get type-inference of the arguments right (this is
wenzelm@12106
   106
especially important for locales);
wenzelm@12106
   107
wenzelm@12312
   108
* Pure: "sorry" no longer requires quick_and_dirty in interactive
wenzelm@12312
   109
mode;
wenzelm@12312
   110
wenzelm@12405
   111
* Pure/obtain: the formal conclusion "thesis", being marked as
wenzelm@12405
   112
``internal'', may no longer be reference directly in the text;
wenzelm@12405
   113
potential INCOMPATIBILITY, may need to use "?thesis" in rare
wenzelm@12405
   114
situations;
wenzelm@12405
   115
wenzelm@12405
   116
* Pure: generic 'sym' attribute which declares a rule both as pure
wenzelm@12405
   117
'elim?' and for the 'symmetric' operation;
wenzelm@12405
   118
wenzelm@12364
   119
* Pure/Provers/classical: simplified integration with pure rule
wenzelm@12364
   120
attributes and methods; the classical "intro?/elim?/dest?"
wenzelm@12364
   121
declarations coincide with the pure ones; the "rule" method no longer
wenzelm@12364
   122
includes classically swapped intros; "intro" and "elim" methods no
wenzelm@12364
   123
longer pick rules from the context; also got rid of ML declarations
wenzelm@12364
   124
AddXIs/AddXEs/AddXDs; all of this has some potential for
wenzelm@12364
   125
INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@12364
   126
wenzelm@12405
   127
* Provers/classical: attribute 'swapped' produces classical inversions
wenzelm@12405
   128
of introduction rules;
wenzelm@12405
   129
wenzelm@12364
   130
* Provers/simplifier: 'simplified' attribute may refer to explicit
wenzelm@12364
   131
rules instead of full simplifier context; 'iff' attribute handles
wenzelm@12364
   132
conditional rules;
wenzelm@11936
   133
wenzelm@11745
   134
* HOL: 'typedef' now allows alternative names for Rep/Abs morphisms;
wenzelm@11745
   135
wenzelm@11690
   136
* HOL: 'recdef' now fails on unfinished automated proofs, use
wenzelm@11633
   137
"(permissive)" option to recover old behavior;
wenzelm@11633
   138
wenzelm@11933
   139
* HOL: 'inductive' no longer features separate (collective) attributes
wenzelm@11933
   140
for 'intros' (was found too confusing);
wenzelm@11933
   141
wenzelm@12405
   142
* HOL: properly declared induction rules less_induct and
wenzelm@12405
   143
wf_induct_rule;
wenzelm@12405
   144
wenzelm@12280
   145
* HOLCF: domain package adapted to new-style theories, e.g. see
wenzelm@12280
   146
HOLCF/ex/Dnat.thy;
wenzelm@12280
   147
wenzelm@12280
   148
* ZF: proper integration of logic-specific tools and packages,
wenzelm@12280
   149
including theory commands '(co)inductive', '(co)datatype',
wenzelm@12280
   150
'rep_datatype', 'inductive_cases', as well as methods 'ind_cases',
wenzelm@12280
   151
'induct_tac', 'case_tac', and 'typecheck' (with attribute 'TC');
wenzelm@12280

   154
*** HOL ***
wenzelm@11474
   155
wenzelm@11702
   156
* HOL: moved over to sane numeral syntax; the new policy is as
wenzelm@11702
   157
follows:
wenzelm@11702
   158
wenzelm@11702
   159
  - 0 and 1 are polymorphic constants, which are defined on any
wenzelm@11702
   160
  numeric type (nat, int, real etc.);
wenzelm@11702
   161
wenzelm@11702
   162
  - 2, 3, 4, ... and -1, -2, -3, ... are polymorphic numerals, based
wenzelm@11702
   163
  binary representation internally;
wenzelm@11702
   164
wenzelm@11702
   165
  - type nat has special constructor Suc, and generally prefers Suc 0
wenzelm@11702
   166
  over 1::nat and Suc (Suc 0) over 2::nat;
wenzelm@11702
   167
wenzelm@12364
   168
This change may cause significant problems of INCOMPATIBILITY; here
wenzelm@12364
   169
are some hints on converting existing sources:
wenzelm@11702
   170
wenzelm@11702
   171
  - due to the new "num" token, "-0" and "-1" etc. are now atomic
wenzelm@11702
   172
  entities, so expressions involving "-" (unary or binary minus) need
wenzelm@11702
   173
  to be spaced properly;
wenzelm@11702
   174
wenzelm@11702
   175
  - existing occurrences of "1" may need to be constraint "1::nat" or
wenzelm@11702
   176
  even replaced by Suc 0; similar for old "2";
wenzelm@11702
   177
wenzelm@11702
   178
  - replace "#nnn" by "nnn", and "#-nnn" by "-nnn";
wenzelm@11702
   179
wenzelm@11702
   180
  - remove all special provisions on numerals in proofs;
wenzelm@11702
   181
wenzelm@12335
   182
* HOL: the class of all HOL types is now called "type" rather than
wenzelm@12335
   183
"term"; INCOMPATIBILITY, need to adapt references to this type class
wenzelm@12335
   184
in axclass/classes, instance/arities, and (usually rare) occurrences
wenzelm@12335
   185
in typings (of consts etc.); internally the class is called
wenzelm@12335
   186
"HOL.type", ML programs should refer to HOLogic.typeS;
wenzelm@12335
   187
wenzelm@12280
   188
* HOL/record package improvements:
wenzelm@12280
   189
  - new derived operations "fields" to build a partial record section,
wenzelm@12280
   190
    "extend" to promote a fixed record to a record scheme, and
wenzelm@12280
   191
    "truncate" for the reverse; cf. theorems "xxx.defs", which are *not*
wenzelm@12280
   192
    declared as simp by default;
wenzelm@12587
   193
  - shared operations ("more", "fields", etc.) now need to be always
wenzelm@12587
   194
    qualified) --- potential INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@12280
   195
  - removed "make_scheme" operations (use "make" with "extend") --
wenzelm@12280
   196
    INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@11937
   197
  - removed "more" class (simply use "term") -- INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@12253
   198
  - provides cases/induct rules for use with corresponding Isar
wenzelm@12253
   199
    methods (for concrete records, record schemes, concrete more
wenzelm@12280
   200
    parts, and schematic more parts -- in that order);
wenzelm@11930
   201
  - internal definitions directly based on a light-weight abstract
wenzelm@11930
   202
    theory of product types over typedef rather than datatype;
wenzelm@11930
   203
wenzelm@11933
   204
* HOL: canonical cases/induct rules for n-tuples (n = 3..7);
wenzelm@11933
   205
wenzelm@11802
   206
* HOL: concrete setsum syntax "\<Sum>i:A. b" == "setsum (%i. b) A"
wenzelm@11802
   207
(beware of argument permutation!);
wenzelm@11802
   208
wenzelm@11657
   209
* HOL: linorder_less_split superseded by linorder_cases;
wenzelm@11657
   210
wenzelm@11633
   211
* HOL: added "The" definite description operator; move Hilbert's "Eps"
wenzelm@11633
   212
to peripheral theory "Hilbert_Choice";
wenzelm@11437
   213
wenzelm@11572
   214
* HOL: made split_all_tac safe; EXISTING PROOFS MAY FAIL OR LOOP, so
wenzelm@11572
   215
in this (rare) case use:
wenzelm@11572
   216
wenzelm@11572
   217
  delSWrapper "split_all_tac"
wenzelm@11572
   218
  addSbefore ("unsafe_split_all_tac", unsafe_split_all_tac)
wenzelm@11572
   219
wenzelm@11572
   220
* HOL: added safe wrapper "split_conv_tac" to claset; EXISTING PROOFS
wenzelm@11474
   221
MAY FAIL;
nipkow@11361
   222
wenzelm@11572
   223
* HOL: introduced f^n = f o ... o f; warning: due to the limits of
wenzelm@11572
   224
Isabelle's type classes, ^ on functions and relations has too general
wenzelm@11572
   225
a domain, namely ('a * 'b) set and 'a => 'b; this means that it may be
wenzelm@11572
   226
necessary to attach explicit type constraints;
nipkow@11307
   227
nipkow@12489
   228
* HOL/Relation: the prefix name of the infix "O" has been changed from "comp"
nipkow@12489
   229
to "rel_comp"; INCOMPATIBILITY: a few theorems have been renamed accordingly
nipkow@12489
   230
(eg "compI" -> "rel_compI").
nipkow@12489
   231
wenzelm@11487
   232
* HOL: syntax translations now work properly with numerals and records
wenzelm@11487
   233
expressions;
wenzelm@11474
   234
wenzelm@12457
   235
* HOL: bounded abstraction now uses syntax "%" / "\<lambda>" instead
wenzelm@12457
   236
of "lam" -- INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@11474
   237
wenzelm@11933
   238
* HOL: got rid of some global declarations (potential INCOMPATIBILITY
wenzelm@11933
   239
for ML tools): const "()" renamed "Product_Type.Unity", type "unit"
wenzelm@11933
   240
renamed "Product_Type.unit";
wenzelm@11611
   241
wenzelm@12457
   242
* HOL/GroupTheory: group theory examples including Sylow's theorem, by
wenzelm@12457
   243
Florian Kammüller;
wenzelm@12457
   244
nipkow@12564
   245
* HOL: renamed rtrancl_into_rtrancl2 to converse_rtrancl_into_rtrancl
nipkow@12564
   246
wenzelm@11611
   247
wenzelm@12022
   248
*** HOLCF ***
wenzelm@12022
   249
wenzelm@12280
   250
* proper rep_datatype lift (see theory Lift) instead of ML hacks --
wenzelm@12280
   251
potential INCOMPATIBILITY; now use plain induct_tac instead of former
wenzelm@12280
   252
lift.induct_tac, always use UU instead of Undef;
wenzelm@12022
   253
wenzelm@12022
   254
wenzelm@11474
   255
*** ZF ***
wenzelm@11474
   256
paulson@12563
   257
* Theory Main no longer includes AC; for the Axiom of Choice, base your 
paulson@12563
   258
theory on Main_ZFC;
paulson@12563
   259
wenzelm@12280
   260
* ZF/UNITY: Chandy and Misra's UNITY is now available in ZF, giving a
wenzelm@12280
   261
typeless version of the formalism;
wenzelm@12280
   262
wenzelm@12280
   263
* ZF/Induct: new directory for examples of inductive definitions,
wenzelm@12280
   264
including theory Multiset for multiset orderings;
wenzelm@12177
   265
wenzelm@11474
   266
* ZF: the integer library now covers quotients and remainders, with
wenzelm@11474
   267

wenzelm@12280
   272
* Pure/kernel: meta-level proof terms (by Stefan Berghofer); reference
wenzelm@12280
   273
variable proof controls level of detail: 0 = no proofs (only oracle
wenzelm@12280
   274
dependencies), 1 = lemma dependencies, 2 = compact proof terms; see
wenzelm@12280
   275
also ref manual for further ML interfaces;
wenzelm@12280
   276
wenzelm@12280
   277
* Pure/axclass: removed obsolete ML interface
wenzelm@12280
   278
goal_subclass/goal_arity;
wenzelm@12280
   279
wenzelm@12280
   280
* Pure/syntax: new token syntax "num" for plain numerals (without "#"
wenzelm@12280
   281
of "xnum"); potential INCOMPATIBILITY, since -0, -1 etc. are now
wenzelm@12280
   282
separate tokens, so expressions involving minus need to be spaced
wenzelm@12280
   283
properly;
wenzelm@12280
   284
wenzelm@12312
   285
* Pure/syntax: support non-oriented infixes, using keyword "infix"
wenzelm@12312
   286
rather than "infixl" or "infixr";
wenzelm@12312
   287
wenzelm@12312
   288
* Pure/syntax: concrete syntax for dummy type variables admits genuine
wenzelm@12312
   289
sort constraint specifications in type inference; e.g. "x::_::foo"
wenzelm@12312
   290
ensures that the type of "x" is of sort "foo" (but not necessarily a
wenzelm@12312
   291
type variable);
wenzelm@12280
   292
wenzelm@12280
   293
* Pure/syntax: print modes "type_brackets" and "no_type_brackets"
wenzelm@12280
   294
control output of nested => (types); the default behavior is
wenzelm@12280
   295
"type_brackets";
wenzelm@12280
   296
wenzelm@12280
   297
* Pure/syntax: builtin parse translation for "_constify" turns valued
wenzelm@11817
   298
tokens into AST constants;
wenzelm@11474
   299
wenzelm@12280
   300
* Pure/syntax: prefer later declarations of translations and print
wenzelm@12280
   301
translation functions; potential INCOMPATIBILITY: need to reverse
wenzelm@12280
   302
multiple declarations for same syntax element constant;
wenzelm@12280
   303
wenzelm@12280
   304
* Provers/classical: renamed addaltern to addafter, addSaltern to
wenzelm@12280
   305
addSafter;
wenzelm@12280
   306
wenzelm@12280
   307
* Provers/clasimp: ``iff'' declarations now handle conditional rules
wenzelm@12280
   308
as well;
wenzelm@12253
   309
wenzelm@12538
   310
* system: tested support for MacOS X; should be able to get Isabelle +
wenzelm@12538
   311
Proof General to work in a plain Terminal after installing Poly/ML
wenzelm@12538
   312
(e.g. from the Isabelle distribution area) and GNU bash alone
wenzelm@12538
   313
(e.g. from http://www.apple.com); full X11, XEmacs and X-Symbol
wenzelm@12538
   314
support requires further installations, e.g. from
wenzelm@12538
   315
http://fink.sourceforge.net/);
wenzelm@12538
   316
wenzelm@12280
   317
* system: support Poly/ML 4.1.1 (able to manage larger heaps);
wenzelm@11551
   318
wenzelm@11633
   319
* system: Proof General keywords specification is now part of the
wenzelm@11633
   320
Isabelle distribution (see etc/isar-keywords.el);
wenzelm@11633
   321
wenzelm@11551
   322
* system: smart selection of Isabelle process versus Isabelle
wenzelm@11572
   323
interface, accommodates case-insensitive file systems (e.g. HFS+); may
wenzelm@11572
   324
run both "isabelle" and "Isabelle" even if file names are badly
wenzelm@11572
   325
damaged (executable inspects the case of the first letter of its own
wenzelm@11572
   326
name); added separate "isabelle-process" and "isabelle-interface";
wenzelm@11551
   327
wenzelm@12472
   328
* system: refrain from any attempt at filtering input streams; no
wenzelm@12472
   329
longer support ``8bit'' encoding of old isabelle font, instead proper
wenzelm@12472
   330
iso-latin characters may now be used; the related isatools
wenzelm@12472
   331
"symbolinput" and "nonascii" have disappeared as well;
wenzelm@12472
   332
wenzelm@12472
   333
* system: removed old "xterm" interface (the print modes "xterm" and
wenzelm@12472
   334
"xterm_color" are still available for direct use in a suitable
wenzelm@12472
   335
terminal);

*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES ***
nipkow@10224
   343
paulson@11241
   344
* HOL: please note that theories in the Library and elsewhere often use the
paulson@11241
   345
new-style (Isar) format; to refer to their theorems in an ML script you must
paulson@11241
   346
bind them to ML identifers by e.g.	val thm_name = thm "thm_name";
paulson@11241
   347
wenzelm@11043
   348
* HOL: inductive package no longer splits induction rule aggressively,
wenzelm@11043
   349
but only as far as specified by the introductions given; the old
oheimb@11130
   350
format may be recovered via ML function complete_split_rule or attribute
wenzelm@11043
   351
'split_rule (complete)';
wenzelm@11043
   352
wenzelm@10998
   353
* HOL: induct renamed to lfp_induct, lfp_Tarski to lfp_unfold,
wenzelm@10998
   354
gfp_Tarski to gfp_unfold;
nipkow@10224
   355
paulson@10288
   356
* HOL: contrapos, contrapos2 renamed to contrapos_nn, contrapos_pp;
paulson@10288
   357
wenzelm@10858
   358
* HOL: infix "dvd" now has priority 50 rather than 70 (because it is a
wenzelm@10858
   359
relation); infix "^^" has been renamed "``"; infix "``" has been
wenzelm@10858
   360
renamed "`"; "univalent" has been renamed "single_valued";
nipkow@10793
   361
wenzelm@10998
   362
* HOL/Real: "rinv" and "hrinv" replaced by overloaded "inverse"
wenzelm@10998
   363
operation;
wenzelm@10998
   364
nipkow@10868
   365
* HOLCF: infix "`" has been renamed "$"; the symbol syntax is \<cdot>;
nipkow@10856
   366
wenzelm@10391
   367
* Isar: 'obtain' no longer declares "that" fact as simp/intro;
wenzelm@10391
   368
wenzelm@10401
   369
* Isar/HOL: method 'induct' now handles non-atomic goals; as a
wenzelm@10401
   370
consequence, it is no longer monotonic wrt. the local goal context
wenzelm@10401
   371
(which is now passed through the inductive cases);
wenzelm@10401
   372
wenzelm@10976
   373
* Document preparation: renamed standard symbols \<ll> to \<lless> and
wenzelm@10976
   374
\<gg> to \<ggreater>;
wenzelm@10976
   375
nipkow@10224
   376
wenzelm@10245
   377
*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@10245
   378
wenzelm@10858
   379
* \isabellestyle{NAME} selects version of Isabelle output (currently
wenzelm@10858
   380
available: are "it" for near math-mode best-style output, "sl" for
wenzelm@10858
   381
slanted text style, and "tt" for plain type-writer; if no
wenzelm@10858
   382
\isabellestyle command is given, output is according to slanted
wenzelm@10858
   383
type-writer);
wenzelm@10858
   384
wenzelm@10322
   385
* support sub/super scripts (for single symbols only), input syntax is
wenzelm@10322
   386
like this: "A\<^sup>*" or "A\<^sup>\<star>";
wenzelm@10322
   387
wenzelm@10858
   388
* some more standard symbols; see Appendix A of the system manual for
wenzelm@11062
   389
the complete list of symbols defined in isabellesym.sty;
wenzelm@10858
   390
wenzelm@10998
   391
* improved isabelle style files; more abstract symbol implementation
wenzelm@10998
   392
(should now use \isamath{...} and \isatext{...} in custom symbol
wenzelm@10998
   393
definitions);
wenzelm@10998
   394
wenzelm@10634
   395
* antiquotation @{goals} and @{subgoals} for output of *dynamic* goals
wenzelm@10634
   396
state; Note that presentation of goal states does not conform to
wenzelm@10634
   397
actual human-readable proof documents.  Please do not include goal
wenzelm@10634
   398
states into document output unless you really know what you are doing!
wenzelm@10322
   399
wenzelm@11062
   400
* proper indentation of antiquoted output with proportional LaTeX
wenzelm@11062
   401
fonts;
wenzelm@10862
   402
wenzelm@11050
   403
* no_document ML operator temporarily disables LaTeX document
wenzelm@11050
   404
generation;
wenzelm@11050
   405
wenzelm@11062
   406
* isatool unsymbolize tunes sources for plain ASCII communication;
wenzelm@11062
   407
wenzelm@10322
   408
wenzelm@10306
   409
*** Isar ***
wenzelm@10306
   410
wenzelm@10547
   411
* Pure: Isar now suffers initial goal statements to contain unbound
wenzelm@10547
   412
schematic variables (this does not conform to actual readable proof
wenzelm@10547
   413
documents, due to unpredictable outcome and non-compositional proof
wenzelm@10547
   414
checking); users who know what they are doing may use schematic goals
wenzelm@10547
   415
for Prolog-style synthesis of proven results;
wenzelm@10547
   416
wenzelm@10391
   417
* Pure: assumption method (an implicit finishing) now handles actual
wenzelm@10391
   418
rules as well;
wenzelm@10391
   419
wenzelm@10391
   420
* Pure: improved 'obtain' --- moved to Pure, insert "that" into
wenzelm@10391
   421
initial goal, declare "that" only as Pure intro (only for single
wenzelm@10391
   422
steps); the "that" rule assumption may now be involved in implicit
wenzelm@10391
   423
finishing, thus ".." becomes a feasible for trivial obtains;
wenzelm@10391
   424
wenzelm@10391
   425
* Pure: default proof step now includes 'intro_classes'; thus trivial
wenzelm@10391
   426
instance proofs may be performed by "..";
wenzelm@10391
   427
wenzelm@10391
   428
* Pure: ?thesis / ?this / "..." now work for pure meta-level
wenzelm@10391
   429
statements as well;
wenzelm@10306
   430
wenzelm@11097
   431
* Pure: more robust selection of calculational rules;
wenzelm@11097
   432
wenzelm@10858
   433
* Pure: the builtin notion of 'finished' goal now includes the ==-refl
wenzelm@10858
   434
rule (as well as the assumption rule);
wenzelm@10858
   435
wenzelm@10858
   436
* Pure: 'thm_deps' command visualizes dependencies of theorems and
wenzelm@10858
   437
lemmas, using the graph browser tool;
wenzelm@10858
   438
wenzelm@10944
   439
* Pure: predict failure of "show" in interactive mode;
wenzelm@10944
   440
wenzelm@11016
   441
* Pure: 'thms_containing' now takes actual terms as arguments;
wenzelm@11016
   442
wenzelm@10401
   443
* HOL: improved method 'induct' --- now handles non-atomic goals
wenzelm@10401
   444
(potential INCOMPATIBILITY); tuned error handling;
wenzelm@10401
   445
wenzelm@10557
   446
* HOL: cases and induct rules now provide explicit hints about the
wenzelm@10547
   447
number of facts to be consumed (0 for "type" and 1 for "set" rules);
wenzelm@10547
   448
any remaining facts are inserted into the goal verbatim;
wenzelm@10547
   449
wenzelm@10858
   450
* HOL: local contexts (aka cases) may now contain term bindings as
wenzelm@10858
   451
well; the 'cases' and 'induct' methods new provide a ?case binding for
wenzelm@10858
   452
the result to be shown in each case;
wenzelm@10858
   453
wenzelm@10770
   454
* HOL: added 'recdef_tc' command;
wenzelm@10770
   455
wenzelm@11016
   456
* isatool convert assists in eliminating legacy ML scripts;
wenzelm@11016

wenzelm@10245
   459
*** HOL ***
wenzelm@10245
   460
wenzelm@10245
   461
* HOL/Library: a collection of generic theories to be used together
wenzelm@10245
   462
with main HOL; the theory loader path already includes this directory
wenzelm@10245
   463
by default; the following existing theories have been moved here:
wenzelm@10245
   464
HOL/Induct/Multiset, HOL/Induct/Acc (as Accessible_Part), HOL/While
wenzelm@10337
   465
(as While_Combinator), HOL/Lex/Prefix (as List_Prefix);
wenzelm@10245
   466
wenzelm@10966
   467
* HOL/Unix: "Some aspects of Unix file-system security", a typical
wenzelm@10966
   468
modelling and verification task performed in Isabelle/HOL +
wenzelm@10966
   469
Isabelle/Isar + Isabelle document preparation (by Markus Wenzel).
wenzelm@10966
   470
wenzelm@11094
   471
* HOL/Algebra: special summation operator SUM no longer exists, it has
wenzelm@11094
   472
been replaced by setsum; infix 'assoc' now has priority 50 (like
wenzelm@11094
   473
'dvd'); axiom 'one_not_zero' has been moved from axclass 'ring' to
wenzelm@11094
   474
'domain', this makes the theory consistent with mathematical
wenzelm@11094
   475
literature;
wenzelm@11094
   476
wenzelm@10514
   477
* HOL basics: added overloaded operations "inverse" and "divide"
wenzelm@10726
   478
(infix "/"), syntax for generic "abs" operation, generic summation
wenzelm@11094
   479
operator \<Sum>;
wenzelm@10452
   480
wenzelm@10391
   481
* HOL/typedef: simplified package, provide more useful rules (see also
wenzelm@10391
   482
HOL/subset.thy);
wenzelm@10391
   483
wenzelm@10915
   484
* HOL/datatype: induction rule for arbitrarily branching datatypes is
wenzelm@10915
   485
now expressed as a proper nested rule (old-style tactic scripts may
wenzelm@10915
   486
require atomize_strip_tac to cope with non-atomic premises);
wenzelm@10915
   487
wenzelm@10915
   488
* HOL: renamed theory "Prod" to "Product_Type", renamed "split" rule
wenzelm@10915
   489
to "split_conv" (old name still available for compatibility);
wenzelm@10915
   490
wenzelm@10915
   491
* HOL: improved concrete syntax for strings (e.g. allows translation
wenzelm@10915
   492
rules with string literals);
wenzelm@10915
   493
paulson@12245
   494
* HOL-Real-Hyperreal: this extends HOL-Real with the hyperreals
paulson@12245
   495
 and Fleuriot's mechanization of analysis, including the transcendental
paulson@12245
   496
 functions for the reals;
paulson@10756
   497
wenzelm@11094
   498
* HOL/Real, HOL/Hyperreal: improved arithmetic simplification;
wenzelm@10391

paulson@10474
   501
*** CTT ***
paulson@10474
   502
wenzelm@10547
   503
* CTT: x-symbol support for Pi, Sigma, -->, : (membership); note that
wenzelm@10547
   504
"lam" is displayed as TWO lambda-symbols
paulson@10474
   505
wenzelm@10547
   506
* CTT: theory Main now available, containing everything (that is, Bool
wenzelm@10547
   507
and Arith);

*** General ***
wenzelm@10391
   511
wenzelm@10547
   512
* Pure: the Simplifier has been implemented properly as a derived rule
wenzelm@10547
   513
outside of the actual kernel (at last!); the overall performance
wenzelm@10547
   514
penalty in practical applications is about 50%, while reliability of
wenzelm@10547
   515
the Isabelle inference kernel has been greatly improved;
wenzelm@10547
   516
wenzelm@11112
   517
* print modes "brackets" and "no_brackets" control output of nested =>
wenzelm@11112
   518
(types) and ==> (props); the default behaviour is "brackets";
wenzelm@11112
   519
wenzelm@10391
   520
* Provers: fast_tac (and friends) now handle actual object-logic rules
wenzelm@10391
   521
as assumptions as well;
wenzelm@10391
   522
wenzelm@11124
   523
* system: support Poly/ML 4.0;
wenzelm@11124
   524
wenzelm@11124
   525
* system: isatool install handles KDE version 1 or 2;

*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES ***
paulson@8014
   533
wenzelm@8848
   534
* HOL: simplification of natural numbers is much changed; to partly
wenzelm@8848
   535
recover the old behaviour (e.g. to prevent n+n rewriting to #2*n)
wenzelm@8848
   536
issue the following ML commands:
wenzelm@8848
   537
wenzelm@8848
   538
  Delsimprocs Nat_Numeral_Simprocs.cancel_numerals;
wenzelm@8848
   539
  Delsimprocs [Nat_Numeral_Simprocs.combine_numerals];
paulson@8788
   540
wenzelm@10129
   541
* HOL: simplification no longer dives into case-expressions; this is
wenzelm@10129
   542
controlled by "t.weak_case_cong" for each datatype t;
wenzelm@10003
   543
wenzelm@10003
   544
* HOL: nat_less_induct renamed to less_induct;
wenzelm@10003
   545
wenzelm@10003
   546
* HOL: systematic renaming of the SOME (Eps) rules, may use isatool
wenzelm@10003
   547
fixsome to patch .thy and .ML sources automatically;
paulson@8967
   548

* HOL: exhaust_tac on datatypes superceded by new generic case_tac;
wenzelm@10003
   559
wenzelm@10003
   560
* HOL: removed obsolete theorem binding expand_if (refer to split_if
wenzelm@10003
   561
instead);
wenzelm@10003
   562
wenzelm@10003
   563
* HOL: the recursion equations generated by 'recdef' are now called
wenzelm@10003
   564
f.simps instead of f.rules;
wenzelm@10003
   565
wenzelm@10003
   566
* HOL: qed_spec_mp now also handles bounded ALL as well;
wenzelm@10003
   567
wenzelm@10003
   568
* HOL: 0 is now overloaded, so the type constraint ":: nat" may
wenzelm@10003
   569
sometimes be needed;
wenzelm@10003
   570
wenzelm@10003
   571
* HOL: the constant for "f``x" is now "image" rather than "op ``";
paulson@8014
   572
paulson@10065
   573
* HOL: the constant for "f-``x" is now "vimage" rather than "op -``";
paulson@10065
   574
wenzelm@9330
   575
* HOL: the disjoint sum is now "<+>" instead of "Plus"; the cartesian
wenzelm@9330
   576
product is now "<*>" instead of "Times"; the lexicographic product is
wenzelm@9330
   577
now "<*lex*>" instead of "**";
nipkow@8705
   578
wenzelm@10003
   579
* HOL: theory Sexp is now in HOL/Induct examples (it used to be part
wenzelm@10003
   580
of main HOL, but was unused); better use HOL's datatype package;
paulson@9971
   581
wenzelm@10137
   582
* HOL: removed "symbols" syntax for constant "override" of theory Map;
wenzelm@10137
   583
the old syntax may be recovered as follows:
wenzelm@10137
   584
wenzelm@10137
   585
  syntax (symbols)
wenzelm@10137
   586
    override  :: "('a ~=> 'b) => ('a ~=> 'b) => ('a ~=> 'b)"
wenzelm@10137
   587
      (infixl "\\<oplus>" 100)
wenzelm@10137
   588
wenzelm@8848
   589
* HOL/Real: "rabs" replaced by overloaded "abs" function;
wenzelm@8848
   590
wenzelm@8887
   591
* HOL/ML: even fewer consts are declared as global (see theories Ord,
wenzelm@8887
   592
Lfp, Gfp, WF); this only affects ML packages that refer to const names
wenzelm@8887
   593
internally;
wenzelm@8887
   594
wenzelm@10003
   595
* HOL and ZF: syntax for quotienting wrt an equivalence relation
wenzelm@10003
   596
changed from A/r to A//r;
wenzelm@9908
   597
wenzelm@10003
   598
* ZF: new treatment of arithmetic (nat & int) may break some old
wenzelm@10003
   599
proofs;
wenzelm@8921
   600
wenzelm@10003
   601
* Isar: renamed some attributes (RS -> THEN, simplify -> simplified,
wenzelm@10003
   602
rulify -> rule_format, elimify -> elim_format, ...);
paulson@9542
   603
wenzelm@9941
   604
* Isar/Provers: intro/elim/dest attributes changed; renamed
wenzelm@9941
   605
intro/intro!/intro!! flags to intro!/intro/intro? (in most cases, one
wenzelm@9937
   606
should have to change intro!! to intro? only); replaced "delrule" by
wenzelm@9937
   607
"rule del";
wenzelm@9437
   608
wenzelm@9612
   609
* Isar/HOL: renamed "intrs" to "intros" in inductive definitions;
wenzelm@9612
   610
wenzelm@9437
   611
* Provers: strengthened force_tac by using new first_best_tac;
oheimb@9402
   612
wenzelm@10003
   613
* LaTeX document preparation: several changes of isabelle.sty (see
wenzelm@10003
   614
lib/texinputs);

wenzelm@8487
   617
*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@8358
   618
wenzelm@9198
   619
* formal comments (text blocks etc.) in new-style theories may now
wenzelm@9753
   620
contain antiquotations of thm/prop/term/typ/text to be presented
wenzelm@9753
   621
according to latex print mode; concrete syntax is like this:
wenzelm@9753
   622
@{term[show_types] "f(x) = a + x"};
wenzelm@9198
   623
wenzelm@8358
   624
* isatool mkdir provides easy setup of Isabelle session directories,
wenzelm@8518
   625
including proper document sources;
wenzelm@8358
   626
wenzelm@8358
   627
* generated LaTeX sources are now deleted after successful run
wenzelm@8358
   628
(isatool document -c); may retain a copy somewhere else via -D option
wenzelm@8358
   629
of isatool usedir;
wenzelm@8358
   630
wenzelm@8566
   631
* isatool usedir -D now lets isatool latex -o sty update the Isabelle
wenzelm@10003
   632
style files, achieving self-contained LaTeX sources and simplifying
wenzelm@10003
   633
LaTeX debugging;
wenzelm@8566
   634
wenzelm@8518
   635
* old-style theories now produce (crude) LaTeX output as well;
wenzelm@8358
   636
wenzelm@9057
   637
* browser info session directories are now self-contained (may be put
wenzelm@9437
   638
on WWW server seperately); improved graphs of nested sessions; removed
wenzelm@9437
   639
graph for 'all sessions';
wenzelm@9057
   640
wenzelm@10003
   641
* several improvements in isabelle style files; \isabellestyle{it}
wenzelm@10003
   642
produces fake math mode output; \isamarkupheader is now \section by
wenzelm@10003
   643
default; see lib/texinputs/isabelle.sty etc.;

*** Isar ***
wenzelm@8184
   647
wenzelm@10003
   648
* Isar/Pure: local results and corresponding term bindings are now
wenzelm@10003
   649
subject to Hindley-Milner polymorphism (similar to ML); this
wenzelm@10003
   650
accommodates incremental type-inference very nicely;
wenzelm@8283
   651
wenzelm@10003
   652
* Isar/Pure: new derived language element 'obtain' supports
wenzelm@10003
   653
generalized existence reasoning;
wenzelm@8621
   654
wenzelm@10003
   655
* Isar/Pure: new calculational elements 'moreover' and 'ultimately'
wenzelm@10003
   656
support accumulation of results, without applying any rules yet;
wenzelm@10003
   657
useful to collect intermediate results without explicit name
wenzelm@10003
   658
references, and for use with transitivity rules with more than 2
wenzelm@10003
   659
premises;
wenzelm@8184
   660
wenzelm@10003
   661
* Isar/Pure: scalable support for case-analysis type proofs: new
wenzelm@10003
   662
'case' language element refers to local contexts symbolically, as
wenzelm@10003
   663
produced by certain proof methods; internally, case names are attached
wenzelm@10003
   664
to theorems as "tags";
wenzelm@8440
   665
wenzelm@10003
   666
* Isar/Pure: theory command 'hide' removes declarations from
wenzelm@9330
   667
class/type/const name spaces;
wenzelm@9330
   668
wenzelm@10003
   669
* Isar/Pure: theory command 'defs' supports option "(overloaded)" to
wenzelm@9330
   670
indicate potential overloading;
wenzelm@9330
   671
wenzelm@10003
   672
* Isar/Pure: changed syntax of local blocks from {{ }} to { };
wenzelm@8621
   673
wenzelm@10003
   674
* Isar/Pure: syntax of sorts made 'inner', i.e. have to write
wenzelm@10003
   675
"{a,b,c}" instead of {a,b,c};
wenzelm@9011
   676
wenzelm@10003
   677
* Isar/Pure now provides its own version of intro/elim/dest
wenzelm@10003
   678
attributes; useful for building new logics, but beware of confusion
wenzelm@10003
   679
with the version in Provers/classical;
wenzelm@9612
   680
wenzelm@10003
   681
* Isar/Pure: the local context of (non-atomic) goals is provided via
wenzelm@10003
   682
case name 'antecedent';
wenzelm@8440
   683
wenzelm@10003
   684
* Isar/Pure: removed obsolete 'transfer' attribute (transfer of thms
wenzelm@10003
   685
to the current context is now done automatically);
wenzelm@9383
   686
wenzelm@10003
   687
* Isar/Pure: theory command 'method_setup' provides a simple interface
wenzelm@10003
   688
for definining proof methods in ML;
wenzelm@9612
   689
wenzelm@10003
   690
* Isar/Provers: intro/elim/dest attributes changed; renamed
wenzelm@9941
   691
intro/intro!/intro!! flags to intro!/intro/intro? (INCOMPATIBILITY, in
wenzelm@9941
   692
most cases, one should have to change intro!! to intro? only);
wenzelm@9941
   693
replaced "delrule" by "rule del";
wenzelm@8283
   694
wenzelm@10003
   695
* Isar/Provers: new 'hypsubst' method, plain 'subst' method and
wenzelm@10003
   696
'symmetric' attribute (the latter supercedes [RS sym]);
wenzelm@10003
   697
wenzelm@10003
   698
* Isar/Provers: splitter support (via 'split' attribute and 'simp'
wenzelm@10003
   699
method modifier); 'simp' method: 'only:' modifier removes loopers as
wenzelm@10003
   700
well (including splits);
wenzelm@10003
   701
wenzelm@10003
   702
* Isar/Provers: Simplifier and Classical methods now support all kind
wenzelm@10003
   703
of modifiers used in the past, including 'cong', 'iff', etc.
wenzelm@10003
   704
wenzelm@10003
   705
* Isar/Provers: added 'fastsimp' and 'clarsimp' methods (combination
wenzelm@10003
   706
of Simplifier and Classical reasoner);
wenzelm@10003
   707
wenzelm@10003
   708
* Isar/HOL: new proof method 'cases' and improved version of 'induct'
wenzelm@10003
   709
now support named cases; major packages (inductive, datatype, primrec,
wenzelm@10003
   710
recdef) support case names and properly name parameters;
wenzelm@9612
   711
wenzelm@10003
   712
* Isar/HOL: new transitivity rules for substitution in inequalities --
wenzelm@10003
   713
monotonicity conditions are extracted to be proven at end of
wenzelm@10003
   714
calculations;
wenzelm@10003
   715
wenzelm@10003
   716
* Isar/HOL: removed 'case_split' thm binding, should use 'cases' proof
wenzelm@10003
   717
method anyway;
wenzelm@10003
   718
wenzelm@10003
   719
* Isar/HOL: removed old expand_if = split_if; theorems if_splits =
wenzelm@10003
   720
split_if split_if_asm; datatype package provides theorems foo.splits =
wenzelm@10003
   721
foo.split foo.split_asm for each datatype;
wenzelm@10003
   722
wenzelm@10003
   723
* Isar/HOL: tuned inductive package, rename "intrs" to "intros"
wenzelm@10003
   724
(potential INCOMPATIBILITY), emulation of mk_cases feature for proof
wenzelm@10003
   725
scripts: new 'inductive_cases' command and 'ind_cases' method; (Note:
wenzelm@10003
   726
use "(cases (simplified))" method in proper proof texts);
wenzelm@10003
   727
wenzelm@10003
   728
* Isar/HOL: added global 'arith_split' attribute for 'arith' method;
wenzelm@10003
   729
wenzelm@10003
   730
* Isar: names of theorems etc. may be natural numbers as well;
wenzelm@10003
   731
wenzelm@10003
   732
* Isar: 'pr' command: optional arguments for goals_limit and
wenzelm@9724
   733
ProofContext.prems_limit; no longer prints theory contexts, but only
wenzelm@9724
   734
proof states;
wenzelm@8487
   735
wenzelm@10003
   736
* Isar: diagnostic commands 'pr', 'thm', 'prop', 'term', 'typ' admit
wenzelm@8518
   737
additional print modes to be specified; e.g. "pr(latex)" will print
wenzelm@8518
   738
proof state according to the Isabelle LaTeX style;
wenzelm@8487
   739
wenzelm@10003
   740
* Isar: improved support for emulating tactic scripts, including proof
wenzelm@9612
   741
methods 'rule_tac' etc., 'cut_tac', 'thin_tac', 'subgoal_tac',
wenzelm@9612
   742
'rename_tac', 'rotate_tac', 'tactic', and 'case_tac' / 'induct_tac'
wenzelm@9612
   743
(for HOL datatypes);
wenzelm@8534
   744
wenzelm@10003
   745
* Isar: simplified (more robust) goal selection of proof methods: 1st
wenzelm@10003
   746
goal, all goals, or explicit goal specifier (tactic emulation); thus
wenzelm@10003
   747
'proof method scripts' have to be in depth-first order;
wenzelm@8673
   748
wenzelm@10003
   749
* Isar: tuned 'let' syntax: replaced 'as' keyword by 'and';
wenzelm@8729
   750
wenzelm@10003
   751
* Isar: removed 'help' command, which hasn't been too helpful anyway;
wenzelm@10003
   752
should instead use individual commands for printing items
wenzelm@10003
   753
(print_commands, print_methods etc.);
wenzelm@9224
   754
wenzelm@10003
   755
* Isar: added 'nothing' --- the empty list of theorems;

wenzelm@10164
   786
wenzelm@10003
   787
* HOL/Lambda: converted into new-style theory and document;

wenzelm@10003
   789
* HOL/ex/Multiquote: example of multiple nested quotations and
wenzelm@10003
   790
anti-quotations -- basically a generalized version of de-Bruijn
wenzelm@10003
   791

wenzelm@8848
   792
wenzelm@9612

   797
* HOL: 0 is now overloaded over the new sort "zero", allowing its use with

   798
other numeric types and also as the identity of groups, rings, etc.;
paulson@8967
   799
paulson@8967
   800
* HOL: new axclass plus_ac0 for addition with the AC-laws and 0 as identity.
paulson@8967
   801
Types nat and int belong to this axclass;
paulson@8967
   802
wenzelm@10003
   803
* HOL: greatly improved simplification involving numerals of type nat, int, real:
paulson@8788
   804
   (i + #8 + j) = Suc k simplifies to  #7 + (i + j) = k
paulson@8832
   805
   i*j + k + j*#3*i     simplifies to  #4*(i*j) + k

  two terms #m*u and #n*u are replaced by #(m+n)*u
paulson@8832

remove t.weak_case_cong from the simpset, either globally (Delcongs
wenzelm@10129
   823
[thm"t.weak_case_cong"];) or locally (delcongs [...]).

   825
* HOL/recdef: the recursion equations generated by 'recdef' for
wenzelm@8848
   826
function 'f' are now called f.simps instead of f.rules; if all
wenzelm@8848
   827
termination conditions are proved automatically, these simplification
wenzelm@8848
   828
rules are added to the simpset, as in primrec; rules may be named
wenzelm@8848
   829
individually as well, resulting in a separate list of theorems for
wenzelm@8848
   830
each equation;
wenzelm@8848
   831
wenzelm@9489
   832
* HOL/While is a new theory that provides a while-combinator. It
wenzelm@9489
   833
permits the definition of tail-recursive functions without the
wenzelm@9489
   834
provision of a termination measure. The latter is necessary once the
wenzelm@9489
   835
invariant proof rule for while is applied.
nipkow@9457
   836
wenzelm@10003
   837
* HOL: new (overloaded) notation for the set of elements below/above
wenzelm@10003
   838
some element: {..u}, {..u(}, {l..}, {)l..}. See theory SetInterval.
nipkow@8925
   839
wenzelm@8848
   840
* HOL: theorems impI, allI, ballI bound as "strip";
wenzelm@8848
   841
wenzelm@10003
   842
* HOL: new tactic induct_thm_tac: thm -> string -> int -> tactic
nipkow@9746
   843
induct_tac th "x1 ... xn" expects th to have a conclusion of the form
nipkow@9746
   844
P v1 ... vn and abbreviates res_inst_tac [("v1","x1"),...,("vn","xn")] th;
nipkow@9746
   845
wenzelm@10003
   846
* HOL/Real: "rabs" replaced by overloaded "abs" function;
nipkow@9737
   847
wenzelm@10003
   848
* HOL: theory Sexp now in HOL/Induct examples (it used to be part of
wenzelm@10003
   849
main HOL, but was unused);
nipkow@8626
   850
wenzelm@10003
   851
* HOL: fewer consts declared as global (e.g. have to refer to
wenzelm@10003
   852
"Lfp.lfp" instead of "lfp" internally; affects ML packages only);
wenzelm@8887
   853
wenzelm@10003
   854
* HOL: tuned AST representation of nested pairs, avoiding bogus output
wenzelm@10003
   855
in case of overlap with user translations (e.g. judgements over
wenzelm@10003
   856
tuples); (note that the underlying logical represenation is still
wenzelm@10003
   857
bogus);

paulson@9542
   861
wenzelm@10003

* ZF: simplification automatically cancels common terms in arithmetic
wenzelm@10003
   863
expressions over nat and int;
paulson@9542
   864
wenzelm@10003
   865
* ZF: new treatment of nat to minimize type-checking: all operators
wenzelm@10003
   866
coerce their operands to a natural number using the function natify,
wenzelm@10003
   867
making the algebraic laws unconditional;
paulson@9542
   868
wenzelm@10003
   869
* ZF: as above, for int: operators coerce their operands to an integer
wenzelm@10003
   870
using the function intify;
paulson@9542
   871
wenzelm@10003
   872
* ZF: the integer library now contains many of the usual laws for the
wenzelm@10003
   873
orderings, including $<=, and monotonicity laws for $+ and $*;
paulson@9542
   874
wenzelm@10003
   875
* ZF: new example ZF/ex/NatSum to demonstrate integer arithmetic
wenzelm@10003
   876
simplification;
paulson@9388
   877
wenzelm@10003
   878
* FOL and ZF: AddIffs now available, giving theorems of the form P<->Q
wenzelm@10003
   879
to the simplifier and classical reasoner simultaneously;

* Provers: blast_tac now handles actual object-logic rules as
wenzelm@10003
   885
assumptions; note that auto_tac uses blast_tac internally as well;
wenzelm@10003
   886
wenzelm@10003
   887
* Provers: new functions rulify/rulify_no_asm: thm -> thm for turning
wenzelm@10003
   888
outer -->/All/Ball into ==>/!!; qed_spec_mp now uses rulify_no_asm;
wenzelm@10003
   889
wenzelm@9941
   890
* Provers: delrules now handles destruct rules as well (no longer need
wenzelm@9941
   891
explicit make_elim);
wenzelm@9941
   892
wenzelm@10003
   893
* Provers: Blast_tac now warns of and ignores "weak elimination rules" e.g.
wenzelm@10003
   894
  [| inj ?f;          ?f ?x = ?f ?y; ?x = ?y ==> ?W |] ==> ?W
wenzelm@10003
   895
use instead the strong form,
wenzelm@10003
   896
  [| inj ?f; ~ ?W ==> ?f ?x = ?f ?y; ?x = ?y ==> ?W |] ==> ?W
wenzelm@10003
   897
in HOL, FOL and ZF the function cla_make_elim will create such rules
wenzelm@10003
   898
from destruct-rules;
wenzelm@9489
   899
wenzelm@9709
   900
* Provers: Simplifier.easy_setup provides a fast path to basic
wenzelm@9709
   901
Simplifier setup for new object-logics;
wenzelm@9709
   902
wenzelm@9709
   903
* Pure: AST translation rules no longer require constant head on LHS;
wenzelm@9349
   904
wenzelm@9709
   905
* Pure: improved name spaces: ambiguous output is qualified; support
wenzelm@9709
   906
for hiding of names;
wenzelm@8729
   907
wenzelm@10003
   908
* system: smart setup of canonical ML_HOME, ISABELLE_INTERFACE, and
wenzelm@10003
   909
XSYMBOL_HOME; no longer need to do manual configuration in most
wenzelm@10003
   910
situations;
wenzelm@10003
   911
wenzelm@9709
   912
* system: compression of ML heaps images may now be controlled via -c
wenzelm@9709
   913
option of isabelle and isatool usedir (currently only observed by
wenzelm@9709
   914
Poly/ML);
wenzelm@8358
   915
wenzelm@9981
   916
* system: isatool installfonts may handle X-Symbol fonts as well (very
wenzelm@9981
   917
useful for remote X11);
wenzelm@9981
   918
wenzelm@9709
   919
* system: provide TAGS file for Isabelle sources;
wenzelm@9052
   920
wenzelm@9288
   921
* ML: infix 'OF' is a version of 'MRS' with more appropriate argument
wenzelm@9288
   922

wenzelm@9288
   923
wenzelm@8994
   924
* ML: renamed flags Syntax.trace_norm_ast to Syntax.trace_ast; global
wenzelm@8994
   925
timing flag supersedes proof_timing and Toplevel.trace;
wenzelm@8994
   926
wenzelm@10003
   927
* ML: new combinators |>> and |>>> for incremental transformations
wenzelm@10003
   928
with secondary results (e.g. certain theory extensions):
wenzelm@10003
   929
wenzelm@9330
   930
* ML: PureThy.add_defs gets additional argument to indicate potential
wenzelm@9330
   931
overloading (usually false);
wenzelm@9330
   932
wenzelm@10003
   933
* ML: PureThy.add_thms/add_axioms/add_defs now return theorems as
wenzelm@10003
   934

   942
paulson@6922
   943
* HOL: The THEN and ELSE parts of conditional expressions (if P then x else y)
paulson@6922
   944
are no longer simplified.  (This allows the simplifier to unfold recursive
paulson@6922
   945
functional programs.)  To restore the old behaviour, declare
wenzelm@7215
   946
wenzelm@7215
   947
    Delcongs [if_weak_cong];
paulson@6922
   948
wenzelm@6269
   949
* HOL: Removed the obsolete syntax "Compl A"; use -A for set
wenzelm@6269
   950
complement;
paulson@5931
   951
wenzelm@6269
   952
* HOL: the predicate "inj" is now defined by translation to "inj_on";
paulson@6174
   953
berghofe@7847
   954
* HOL/datatype: mutual_induct_tac no longer exists --
berghofe@7847
   955
  use induct_tac "x_1 ... x_n" instead of mutual_induct_tac ["x_1", ..., "x_n"]
berghofe@7847
   956
wenzelm@6386
   957
* HOL/typedef: fixed type inference for representing set; type
wenzelm@6386
   958
arguments now have to occur explicitly on the rhs as type constraints;
wenzelm@6386
   959
wenzelm@6269
   960
* ZF: The con_defs part of an inductive definition may no longer refer
wenzelm@6269
   961
to constants declared in the same theory;
nipkow@6057
   962
wenzelm@6269
   963
* HOL, ZF: the function mk_cases, generated by the inductive
wenzelm@6269
   964
definition package, has lost an argument.  To simplify its result, it
wenzelm@6269
   965
uses the default simpset instead of a supplied list of theorems.
paulson@6141
   966
wenzelm@7215
   967
* HOL/List: the constructors of type list are now Nil and Cons;
wenzelm@7215
   968
nipkow@7619
   969
* Simplifier: the type of the infix ML functions
wenzelm@8729
   970
        setSSolver addSSolver setSolver addSolver
nipkow@7619
   971
is now  simpset * solver -> simpset  where `solver' is a new abstract type
nipkow@7619
   972
for packaging solvers. A solver is created via
wenzelm@8729
   973
        mk_solver: string -> (thm list -> int -> tactic) -> solver
nipkow@7619
   974
where the string argument is only a comment.

*** Proof tools ***
paulson@6069
   978
wenzelm@6343
   979
* Provers/Arith/fast_lin_arith.ML contains a functor for creating a
wenzelm@6343
   980
decision procedure for linear arithmetic. Currently it is used for
wenzelm@7593
   981
types `nat', `int', and `real' in HOL (see below); it can, should and
wenzelm@7593
   982
will be instantiated for other types and logics as well.
paulson@6069
   983
nipkow@7324
   984
* The simplifier now accepts rewrite rules with flexible heads, eg
nipkow@7324
   985
     hom ?f ==> ?f(?x+?y) = ?f ?x + ?f ?y
nipkow@7324
   986
  They are applied like any rule with a non-pattern lhs, i.e. by first-order
nipkow@7324
   987
  matching.

* New Isabelle/Isar subsystem provides an alternative to traditional
wenzelm@7215
   993
tactical theorem proving; together with the ProofGeneral/isar user
wenzelm@7215
   994
interface it offers an interactive environment for developing human
wenzelm@7215
   995
readable proof documents (Isar == Intelligible semi-automated
wenzelm@7886
   996
reasoning); for further information see isatool doc isar-ref,

src/HOL/Isar_examples and http://isabelle.in.tum.de/Isar/
wenzelm@7886
   998
wenzelm@9612
   999
* improved and simplified presentation of theories: better HTML markup
wenzelm@9612
  1000
(including colors), graph views in several sizes; isatool usedir now
wenzelm@9612
  1001
provides a proper interface for user theories (via -P option); actual
wenzelm@9612
  1002
document preparation based on (PDF)LaTeX is available as well (for
wenzelm@9612
  1003
new-style theories only); see isatool doc system for more information;
wenzelm@7215
  1004
wenzelm@7252
  1005
* native support for Proof General, both for classic Isabelle and
wenzelm@7986
  1006
Isabelle/Isar;
wenzelm@7215
  1007
wenzelm@7791
  1008
* ML function thm_deps visualizes dependencies of theorems and lemmas,
wenzelm@7791
  1009
using the graph browser tool;
wenzelm@7791
  1010
wenzelm@6751
  1011
* Isabelle manuals now also available as PDF;
wenzelm@6751
  1012
wenzelm@6449
  1013
* theory loader rewritten from scratch (may not be fully
wenzelm@6449
  1014
bug-compatible); old loadpath variable has been replaced by show_path,
wenzelm@6671
  1015
add_path, del_path, reset_path functions; new operations such as
wenzelm@7593
  1016
update_thy, touch_thy, remove_thy, use/update_thy_only (see also
wenzelm@7593
  1017
isatool doc ref);
wenzelm@6449
  1018
wenzelm@7215
  1019
* improved isatool install: option -k creates KDE application icon,
wenzelm@7215
  1020
option -p DIR installs standalone binaries;
wenzelm@7215
  1021
wenzelm@7215
  1022
* added ML_PLATFORM setting (useful for cross-platform installations);
wenzelm@7215
  1023
more robust handling of platform specific ML images for SML/NJ;
wenzelm@7215
  1024
wenzelm@7886
  1025
* the settings environment is now statically scoped, i.e. it is never
wenzelm@7986
  1026

wenzelm@7886
  1027
Isabelle;
wenzelm@7886
  1028
wenzelm@7215
  1029
* path element specification '~~' refers to '$ISABELLE_HOME';

wenzelm@6343
  1031
* in locales, the "assumes" and "defines" parts may be omitted if

wenzelm@5973
  1033
wenzelm@6269

** HOL arithmetic **
wenzelm@7215
  1071
wenzelm@6343
  1072
* There are now decision procedures for linear arithmetic over nat and
wenzelm@6343
  1073
int:
nipkow@6131
  1074
wenzelm@6343
  1075
1. arith_tac copes with arbitrary formulae involving `=', `<', `<=',
wenzelm@6343
  1076
`+', `-', `Suc', `min', `max' and numerical constants; other subterms
wenzelm@6343
  1077
are treated as atomic; subformulae not involving type `nat' or `int'
wenzelm@6343
  1078
are ignored; quantified subformulae are ignored unless they are
wenzelm@6343
  1079
positive universal or negative existential. The tactic has to be
wenzelm@6343
  1080
invoked by hand and can be a little bit slow. In particular, the
wenzelm@6343
  1081
running time is exponential in the number of occurrences of `min' and
wenzelm@6343
  1082
`max', and `-' on `nat'.
nipkow@6131
  1083
wenzelm@6343
  1084
2. fast_arith_tac is a cut-down version of arith_tac: it only takes
wenzelm@6343
  1085
(negated) (in)equalities among the premises and the conclusion into
wenzelm@6343
  1086
account (i.e. no compound formulae) and does not know about `min' and
wenzelm@6343
  1087
`max', and `-' on `nat'. It is fast and is used automatically by the
wenzelm@6343
  1088
simplifier.
nipkow@6131
  1089
wenzelm@6343
  1090
NB: At the moment, these decision procedures do not cope with mixed
wenzelm@6343
  1091
nat/int formulae where the two parts interact, such as `m < n ==>
wenzelm@6343
  1092
int(m) < int(n)'.
oheimb@6028
  1093
wenzelm@7215
  1094

wenzelm@7313
  1095
efficiently as bit strings); setup for types nat/int/real is in place;
wenzelm@7215
  1096
INCOMPATIBILITY: since numeral syntax is now polymorphic, rather than
wenzelm@7215
  1097
int, existing theories and proof scripts may require a few additional
wenzelm@7215
  1098

wenzelm@7215

* An interface to the Stanford Validity Checker (SVC) is available through the
paulson@7287
  1107
tactic svc_tac.  Propositional tautologies and theorems of linear arithmetic
paulson@7287
  1108
are proved automatically.  SVC must be installed separately, and its results
paulson@7287
  1109
must be TAKEN ON TRUST (Isabelle does not check the proofs, but tags any
paulson@7287
  1110
invocation of the underlying oracle).  For SVC see

* HOL/BCV: generic model of bytecode verification, i.e. data-flow
wenzelm@7691
  1122
analysis for assembly languages with subtypes;
wenzelm@7691
  1123
wenzelm@6278
  1124
* HOL/TLA (Lamport's Temporal Logic of Actions): major reorganization
wenzelm@6278
  1125
-- avoids syntactic ambiguities and treats state, transition, and
wenzelm@6278
  1126
temporal levels more uniformly; introduces INCOMPATIBILITIES due to
wenzelm@6278
  1127
changed syntax and (many) tactics;
wenzelm@6278
  1128
wenzelm@7791
  1129
* HOL/inductive: Now also handles more general introduction rules such
wenzelm@7791
  1130
  as "ALL y. (y, x) : r --> y : acc r ==> x : acc r"; monotonicity
wenzelm@7791
  1131
  theorems are now maintained within the theory (maintained via the
wenzelm@7791
  1132
  "mono" attribute);
berghofe@7780
  1133
wenzelm@7238
  1134
* HOL/datatype: Now also handles arbitrarily branching datatypes
wenzelm@7238
  1135
  (using function types) such as
wenzelm@7238
  1136
wenzelm@7238
  1137
  datatype 'a tree = Atom 'a | Branch "nat => 'a tree"
berghofe@7047
  1138
wenzelm@7326
  1139
* HOL/record: record_simproc (part of the default simpset) takes care
wenzelm@7326
  1140
of selectors applied to updated records; record_split_tac is no longer
wenzelm@7327
  1141
part of the default claset; update_defs may now be removed from the
wenzelm@7327
  1142
simpset in many cases; COMPATIBILITY: old behavior achieved by
wenzelm@7326
  1143
wenzelm@7326
  1144
  claset_ref () := claset() addSWrapper record_split_wrapper;

  1145
  Delsimprocs [record_simproc]
wenzelm@7326
  1146
wenzelm@6386
  1147
* HOL/typedef: fixed type inference for representing set; type
wenzelm@6386
  1148
arguments now have to occur explicitly on the rhs as type constraints;
wenzelm@6386
  1149
paulson@7287
  1150
* HOL/recdef (TFL): 'congs' syntax now expects comma separated list of theorem
paulson@7287
  1151
names rather than an ML expression;
paulson@7287
  1152
paulson@7287
  1153
* HOL/defer_recdef (TFL): like recdef but the well-founded relation can be
paulson@7287
  1154
supplied later.  Program schemes can be defined, such as
paulson@7287
  1155
    "While B C s = (if B s then While B C (C s) else s)"
paulson@7287
  1156
where the well-founded relation can be chosen after B and C have been given.
wenzelm@6563
  1157
wenzelm@7215
  1158
* HOL/List: the constructors of type list are now Nil and Cons;
wenzelm@7215
  1159
INCOMPATIBILITY: while [] and infix # syntax is still there, of
wenzelm@7215
  1160
course, ML tools referring to List.list.op # etc. have to be adapted;
wenzelm@7215
  1161
wenzelm@7238
  1162
* HOL_quantifiers flag superseded by "HOL" print mode, which is
wenzelm@7238
  1163
disabled by default; run isabelle with option -m HOL to get back to
wenzelm@7238
  1164
the original Gordon/HOL-style output;
wenzelm@7238
  1165
wenzelm@7238
  1166
* HOL/Ord.thy: new bounded quantifier syntax (input only): ALL x<y. P,
wenzelm@7238
  1167
ALL x<=y. P, EX x<y. P, EX x<=y. P;
wenzelm@7238
  1168
wenzelm@7238
  1169
* HOL basic syntax simplified (more orthogonal): all variants of
wenzelm@7238
  1170
All/Ex now support plain / symbolic / HOL notation; plain syntax for
wenzelm@7238
  1171
Eps operator is provided as well: "SOME x. P[x]";
wenzelm@7238
  1172
berghofe@7320
  1173
* HOL/Sum.thy: sum_case has been moved to HOL/Datatype;
wenzelm@7261
  1174
wenzelm@7280
  1175
* HOL/Univ.thy: infix syntax <*>, <+>, <**>, <+> eliminated and made
wenzelm@7280
  1176
thus available for user theories;
wenzelm@7280
  1177
wenzelm@7300
  1178
* HOLCF/IOA/Sequents: renamed 'Cons' to 'Consq' to avoid clash with
wenzelm@7300
  1179
HOL/List; hardly an INCOMPATIBILITY since '>>' syntax is used all the
wenzelm@7300
  1180
time;
wenzelm@7300
  1181
wenzelm@7986
  1182
* HOL: new tactic smp_tac: int -> int -> tactic, which applies spec

paulson@6064
  1200
* new primrec section allows primitive recursive functions to be given

  1201
directly (as in HOL) over datatypes and the natural numbers;
paulson@6064
  1202
wenzelm@6269
  1203
* new tactics induct_tac and exhaust_tac for induction (or case
wenzelm@6269
  1204
analysis) over datatypes and the natural numbers;
paulson@6064
  1205
paulson@6064
  1206
* the datatype declaration of type T now defines the recursor T_rec;
paulson@6064
  1207
paulson@6141
  1208
* simplification automatically does freeness reasoning for datatype
wenzelm@6269
  1209
constructors;
paulson@6141
  1210
wenzelm@6269
  1211
* automatic type-inference, with AddTCs command to insert new
wenzelm@6269
  1212
type-checking rules;
paulson@6155
  1213
wenzelm@6269
  1214
* datatype introduction rules are now added as Safe Introduction rules
wenzelm@6269
  1215
to the claset;
paulson@6155
  1216
wenzelm@6269
  1217
* the syntax "if P then x else y" is now available in addition to
wenzelm@6269

*** Internal programming interfaces ***
wenzelm@6343
  1222

  1223
* tuned simplifier trace output; new flag debug_simp;
wenzelm@7919
  1224
wenzelm@7420
  1225
* structures Vartab / Termtab (instances of TableFun) offer efficient
wenzelm@7420
  1226
tables indexed by indexname_ord / term_ord (compatible with aconv);
wenzelm@7420
  1227
wenzelm@6386
  1228
* AxClass.axclass_tac lost the theory argument;
wenzelm@6386
  1229
wenzelm@6343
  1230
* tuned current_goals_markers semantics: begin / end goal avoids
wenzelm@6343
  1231
printing empty lines;
wenzelm@6343
  1232
wenzelm@6343
  1233
* removed prs and prs_fn hook, which was broken because it did not
wenzelm@6343
  1234
include \n in its semantics, forcing writeln to add one
wenzelm@6343
  1235
uncoditionally; replaced prs_fn by writeln_fn; consider std_output:
wenzelm@6343
  1236
string -> unit if you really want to output text without newline;
wenzelm@6343
  1237
wenzelm@6343
  1238
* Symbol.output subject to print mode; INCOMPATIBILITY: defaults to
wenzelm@6343
  1239
plain output, interface builders may have to enable 'isabelle_font'
wenzelm@6343
  1240
mode to get Isabelle font glyphs as before;
wenzelm@6343
  1241
wenzelm@6343
  1242
* refined token_translation interface; INCOMPATIBILITY: output length
wenzelm@6343
  1243
now of type real instead of int;
wenzelm@6343
  1244
wenzelm@7196
  1245
* theory loader actions may be traced via new ThyInfo.add_hook
wenzelm@7196
  1246
interface (see src/Pure/Thy/thy_info.ML); example application: keep
wenzelm@7196
  1247
your own database of information attached to *whole* theories -- as
wenzelm@7196
  1248
opposed to intra-theory data slots offered via TheoryDataFun;
wenzelm@7196
  1249
wenzelm@7647
  1250
* proper handling of dangling sort hypotheses (at last!);
wenzelm@7647
  1251
Thm.strip_shyps and Drule.strip_shyps_warning take care of removing
wenzelm@7647
  1252
extra sort hypotheses that can be witnessed from the type signature;
wenzelm@7986
  1253
the force_strip_shyps flag is gone, any remaining shyps are simply
wenzelm@7986
  1254
left in the theorem (with a warning issued by strip_shyps_warning);

*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES (see below for more details) ***
wenzelm@4842
  1262
wenzelm@5726
  1263
* several changes of automated proof tools;
wenzelm@5373
  1264
wenzelm@5726
  1265
* HOL: major changes to the inductive and datatype packages, including
wenzelm@5726
  1266
some minor incompatibilities of theory syntax;
berghofe@5214
  1267
wenzelm@5726
  1268
* HOL: renamed r^-1 to 'converse' from 'inverse'; 'inj_onto' is now
wenzelm@5217
  1269
called `inj_on';
paulson@5160
  1270
nipkow@5275
  1271
* HOL: removed duplicate thms in Arith:
nipkow@5275
  1272
  less_imp_add_less  should be replaced by  trans_less_add1
nipkow@5275
  1273
  le_imp_add_le      should be replaced by  trans_le_add1
paulson@5160
  1274
wenzelm@5726
  1275
* HOL: unary minus is now overloaded (new type constraints may be
wenzelm@5726
  1276
required);
paulson@5490
  1277
wenzelm@5726
  1278
* HOL and ZF: unary minus for integers is now #- instead of #~.  In
wenzelm@5726
  1279
ZF, expressions such as n#-1 must be changed to n#- 1, since #-1 is
wenzelm@5726
  1280
now taken as an integer constant.
paulson@5541
  1281
wenzelm@5726
  1282
* Pure: ML function 'theory_of' renamed to 'theory';
wenzelm@5397
  1283
wenzelm@5363
  1284
wenzelm@5127
  1285
*** Proof tools ***
nipkow@4880
  1286
nipkow@5657
  1287
* Simplifier:
nipkow@5657
  1288
  1. Asm_full_simp_tac is now more aggressive.
nipkow@5657
  1289
     1. It will sometimes reorient premises if that increases their power to
nipkow@5657
  1290
        simplify.
nipkow@5657
  1291
     2. It does no longer proceed strictly from left to right but may also
nipkow@5657
  1292
        rotate premises to achieve further simplification.
nipkow@5657
  1293
     For compatibility reasons there is now Asm_lr_simp_tac which is like the
nipkow@5657
  1294
     old Asm_full_simp_tac in that it does not rotate premises.
nipkow@5657
  1295
  2. The simplifier now knows a little bit about nat-arithmetic.
nipkow@4880
  1296
wenzelm@5127
  1297
* Classical reasoner: wrapper mechanism for the classical reasoner now
wenzelm@5127
  1298
allows for selected deletion of wrappers, by introduction of names for
wenzelm@5127
  1299
wrapper functionals.  This implies that addbefore, addSbefore,
wenzelm@5127
  1300
addaltern, and addSaltern now take a pair (name, tactic) as argument,
wenzelm@5127
  1301
and that adding two tactics with the same name overwrites the first
wenzelm@5127
  1302
one (emitting a warning).
oheimb@4824
  1303
  type wrapper = (int -> tactic) -> (int -> tactic)
oheimb@4649
  1304
  setWrapper, setSWrapper, compWrapper and compSWrapper are replaced by
oheimb@4824
  1305
  addWrapper, addSWrapper: claset * (string * wrapper) -> claset
oheimb@4824
  1306
  delWrapper, delSWrapper: claset *  string            -> claset
oheimb@4649
  1307
  getWrapper is renamed to appWrappers, getSWrapper to appSWrappers;
oheimb@4649
  1308
wenzelm@5705
  1309
* Classical reasoner: addbefore/addSbefore now have APPEND/ORELSE
wenzelm@5726
  1310
semantics; addbefore now affects only the unsafe part of step_tac
wenzelm@5726
  1311
etc.; this affects addss/auto_tac/force_tac, so EXISTING PROOFS MAY
wenzelm@5726
  1312
FAIL, but proofs should be fixable easily, e.g. by replacing Auto_tac
wenzelm@5726
  1313
by Force_tac;
oheimb@5524
  1314
wenzelm@5726
  1315
* Classical reasoner: setwrapper to setWrapper and compwrapper to
wenzelm@5726
  1316
compWrapper; added safe wrapper (and access functions for it);
oheimb@5524
  1317
wenzelm@5127
  1318
* HOL/split_all_tac is now much faster and fails if there is nothing
wenzelm@5726
  1319
to split.  Some EXISTING PROOFS MAY REQUIRE ADAPTION because the order
wenzelm@5726
  1320
and the names of the automatically generated variables have changed.
wenzelm@5726
  1321
split_all_tac has moved within claset() from unsafe wrappers to safe
wenzelm@5726
  1322
wrappers, which means that !!-bound variables are split much more
wenzelm@5726
  1323
aggressively, and safe_tac and clarify_tac now split such variables.
wenzelm@5726
  1324
If this splitting is not appropriate, use delSWrapper "split_all_tac".
wenzelm@5726
  1325
Note: the same holds for record_split_tac, which does the job of
wenzelm@5726
  1326
split_all_tac for record fields.
wenzelm@5127
  1327
wenzelm@5726
  1328
* HOL/Simplifier: Rewrite rules for case distinctions can now be added
wenzelm@5726
  1329
permanently to the default simpset using Addsplits just like
wenzelm@5726
  1330
Addsimps. They can be removed via Delsplits just like
wenzelm@5726
  1331
Delsimps. Lower-case versions are also available.
wenzelm@5127
  1332
wenzelm@5726
  1333
* HOL/Simplifier: The rule split_if is now part of the default
wenzelm@5726
  1334
simpset. This means that the simplifier will eliminate all occurrences
wenzelm@5726
  1335
of if-then-else in the conclusion of a goal. To prevent this, you can
wenzelm@5726
  1336
either remove split_if completely from the default simpset by
wenzelm@5726
  1337
`Delsplits [split_if]' or remove it in a specific call of the
wenzelm@5726
  1338
simplifier using `... delsplits [split_if]'.  You can also add/delete
wenzelm@5726
  1339
other case splitting rules to/from the default simpset: every datatype
wenzelm@5726
  1340
generates suitable rules `split_t_case' and `split_t_case_asm' (where
wenzelm@5726
  1341
t is the name of the datatype).
wenzelm@5127
  1342
wenzelm@5726
  1343
* Classical reasoner / Simplifier combination: new force_tac (and
wenzelm@5127
  1344
derivatives Force_tac, force) combines rewriting and classical
wenzelm@5127
  1345
reasoning (and whatever other tools) similarly to auto_tac, but is
wenzelm@5726
  1346
aimed to solve the given subgoal completely.

wenzelm@5127
  1349
*** General ***
wenzelm@5127
  1350
wenzelm@5217
  1351
* new top-level commands `Goal' and `Goalw' that improve upon `goal'
wenzelm@5127
  1352
and `goalw': the theory is no longer needed as an explicit argument -
wenzelm@5127
  1353
the current theory context is used; assumptions are no longer returned
wenzelm@5127
  1354
at the ML-level unless one of them starts with ==> or !!; it is
wenzelm@5217
  1355
recommended to convert to these new commands using isatool fixgoal
wenzelm@5217
  1356
(backup your sources first!);
wenzelm@4842
  1357
wenzelm@5217
  1358
* new top-level commands 'thm' and 'thms' for retrieving theorems from
wenzelm@5207
  1359
the current theory context, and 'theory' to lookup stored theories;
paulson@4806
  1360
paulson@5722
  1361
* new theory section 'locale' for declaring constants, assumptions and
paulson@5722
  1362
definitions that have local scope;
paulson@5722
  1363
wenzelm@5127
  1364
* new theory section 'nonterminals' for purely syntactic types;
wenzelm@4858
  1365
wenzelm@5127
  1366
* new theory section 'setup' for generic ML setup functions
wenzelm@5127
  1367
(e.g. package initialization);
wenzelm@4869
  1368
wenzelm@5131
  1369
* the distribution now includes Isabelle icons: see

  1370
lib/logo/isabelle-{small,tiny}.xpm;
wenzelm@5131
  1371
wenzelm@5363
  1372
* isatool install - install binaries with absolute references to
wenzelm@5363
  1373
ISABELLE_HOME/bin;
wenzelm@5363
  1374
wenzelm@5572
  1375
* isatool logo -- create instances of the Isabelle logo (as EPS);

* support multiple print (ast) translations per constant name;
wenzelm@5726
  1380
wenzelm@6925

  1397
new theorem list "elims" contains an elimination rule for each of the
wenzelm@5217
  1398
recursive sets; inductive definitions now handle disjunctive premises
wenzelm@5217
  1399
correctly (also ZF);
berghofe@5214
  1400
wenzelm@5217
  1401
INCOMPATIBILITIES: requires Inductive as an ancestor; component
wenzelm@5217
  1402
"mutual_induct" no longer exists - the induction rule is always
wenzelm@5217
  1403
contained in "induct";
wenzelm@5217
  1404
wenzelm@5217
  1405
wenzelm@5217
  1406
* HOL/datatype package re-implemented and greatly improved: now
paulson@5267
  1407
supports mutually recursive datatypes such as
wenzelm@5217
  1408
wenzelm@5217
  1409
  datatype
wenzelm@5217
  1410
    'a aexp = IF_THEN_ELSE ('a bexp) ('a aexp) ('a aexp)
wenzelm@5217
  1411
            | SUM ('a aexp) ('a aexp)
wenzelm@5217
  1412
            | DIFF ('a aexp) ('a aexp)
wenzelm@5217
  1413
            | NUM 'a
wenzelm@5217
  1414
  and
wenzelm@5217
  1415
    'a bexp = LESS ('a aexp) ('a aexp)
wenzelm@5217
  1416
            | AND ('a bexp) ('a bexp)
wenzelm@5217
  1417
            | OR ('a bexp) ('a bexp)
wenzelm@5217
  1418
paulson@5267
  1419
as well as indirectly recursive datatypes such as
berghofe@5214
  1420
wenzelm@5217
  1421
  datatype
wenzelm@5217
  1422
    ('a, 'b) term = Var 'a
wenzelm@5217
  1423
                  | App 'b ((('a, 'b) term) list)
berghofe@5214
  1424
wenzelm@5217
  1425
The new tactic  mutual_induct_tac [<var_1>, ..., <var_n>] i  performs
wenzelm@5217
  1426
induction on mutually / indirectly recursive datatypes.
wenzelm@5217
  1427
wenzelm@5217
  1428
Primrec equations are now stored in theory and can be accessed via
wenzelm@5217
  1429
<function_name>.simps.
wenzelm@5217
  1430
wenzelm@5217
  1431
INCOMPATIBILITIES:
berghofe@5214
  1432
wenzelm@5217
  1433
  - Theories using datatypes must now have theory Datatype as an
wenzelm@5217
  1434
    ancestor.
wenzelm@5217
  1435
  - The specific <typename>.induct_tac no longer exists - use the
wenzelm@5217
  1436
    generic induct_tac instead.
berghofe@5226
  1437
  - natE has been renamed to nat.exhaust - use exhaust_tac
wenzelm@5217
  1438
    instead of res_inst_tac ... natE. Note that the variable
berghofe@5226
  1439
    names in nat.exhaust differ from the names in natE, this
wenzelm@5217
  1440
    may cause some "fragile" proofs to fail.
wenzelm@5217
  1441
  - The theorems split_<typename>_case and split_<typename>_case_asm
wenzelm@5217
  1442
    have been renamed to <typename>.split and <typename>.split_asm.
wenzelm@5217
  1443
  - Since default sorts of type variables are now handled correctly,
wenzelm@5217
  1444
    some datatype definitions may have to be annotated with explicit
wenzelm@5217
  1445
    sort constraints.
wenzelm@5217
  1446
  - Primrec definitions no longer require function name and type
wenzelm@5217
  1447
    of recursive argument.
berghofe@5214
  1448
wenzelm@5217
  1449
Consider using isatool fixdatatype to adapt your theories and proof
wenzelm@5217
  1450
scripts to the new package (backup your sources first!).
wenzelm@5217
  1451
wenzelm@5217
  1452
wenzelm@5726
  1453
* HOL/record package: considerably improved implementation; now
wenzelm@5726
  1454
includes concrete syntax for record types, terms, updates; theorems
wenzelm@5726
  1455
for surjective pairing and splitting !!-bound record variables; proof
wenzelm@5726
  1456
support is as follows:
wenzelm@5726
  1457
wenzelm@5726
  1458
  1) standard conversions (selectors or updates applied to record
wenzelm@5726
  1459
constructor terms) are part of the standard simpset;
wenzelm@5726
  1460
wenzelm@5726
  1461
  2) inject equations of the form ((x, y) = (x', y')) == x=x' & y=y' are
wenzelm@5726
  1462
made part of standard simpset and claset via addIffs;
wenzelm@5726
  1463
wenzelm@5726
  1464
  3) a tactic for record field splitting (record_split_tac) is part of
wenzelm@5726
  1465
the standard claset (addSWrapper);
wenzelm@5726
  1466
wenzelm@5726
  1467
To get a better idea about these rules you may retrieve them via
wenzelm@5726
  1468
something like 'thms "foo.simps"' or 'thms "foo.iffs"', where "foo" is
wenzelm@5726
  1469
the name of your record type.
wenzelm@5726
  1470
wenzelm@5726
  1471
The split tactic 3) conceptually simplifies by the following rule:
wenzelm@5726
  1472
wenzelm@5726
  1473
  "(!!x. PROP ?P x) == (!!a b. PROP ?P (a, b))"
wenzelm@5726
  1474
wenzelm@5726
  1475
Thus any record variable that is bound by meta-all will automatically
wenzelm@5726
  1476
blow up into some record constructor term, consequently the
wenzelm@5726
  1477
simplifications of 1), 2) apply.  Thus force_tac, auto_tac etc. shall
wenzelm@5726
  1478
solve record problems automatically.
wenzelm@5726
  1479
berghofe@5214
  1480
wenzelm@5125
  1481
* reorganized the main HOL image: HOL/Integ and String loaded by
wenzelm@5125
  1482
default; theory Main includes everything;
wenzelm@5125
  1483
paulson@5650
  1484
* automatic simplification of integer sums and comparisons, using cancellation;
paulson@5650
  1485
oheimb@5526
  1486
* added option_map_eq_Some and not_Some_eq to the default simpset and claset;
wenzelm@5127
  1487
wenzelm@5127
  1488
* added disj_not1 = "(~P | Q) = (P --> Q)" to the default simpset;
wenzelm@5127
  1489
wenzelm@5127
  1490
* many new identities for unions, intersections, set difference, etc.;
wenzelm@5127
  1491
wenzelm@5127
  1492
* expand_if, expand_split, expand_sum_case and expand_nat_case are now
wenzelm@5127
  1493
called split_if, split_split, split_sum_case and split_nat_case (to go
wenzelm@5127
  1494
with add/delsplits);
wenzelm@5125
  1495
wenzelm@5127
  1496
* HOL/Prod introduces simplification procedure unit_eq_proc rewriting
wenzelm@5127
  1497
(?x::unit) = (); this is made part of the default simpset, which COULD
wenzelm@5127
  1498
MAKE EXISTING PROOFS FAIL under rare circumstances (consider
wenzelm@5207
  1499
'Delsimprocs [unit_eq_proc];' as last resort); also note that
wenzelm@5207
  1500
unit_abs_eta_conv is added in order to counter the effect of
wenzelm@5207
  1501
unit_eq_proc on (%u::unit. f u), replacing it by f rather than by
wenzelm@5207
  1502
%u.f();
wenzelm@5125
  1503
wenzelm@5217
  1504
* HOL/Fun INCOMPATIBILITY: `inj_onto' is now called `inj_on' (which
wenzelm@5217
  1505
makes more sense);
berghofe@5109
  1506
paulson@5475
  1507
* HOL/Set INCOMPATIBILITY: rule `equals0D' is now a well-formed destruct rule;
paulson@5475
  1508
  It and 'sym RS equals0D' are now in the default  claset, giving automatic
paulson@5475
  1509
  disjointness reasoning but breaking a few old proofs.
paulson@5267
  1510
wenzelm@5217
  1511
* HOL/Relation INCOMPATIBILITY: renamed the relational operator r^-1
wenzelm@5217
  1512
to 'converse' from 'inverse' (for compatibility with ZF and some
wenzelm@5217
  1513
literature);
wenzelm@5085
  1514
wenzelm@5127
  1515
* HOL/recdef can now declare non-recursive functions, with {} supplied as
wenzelm@5127
  1516
the well-founded relation;
oheimb@4838
  1517
paulson@5490
  1518
* HOL/Set INCOMPATIBILITY: the complement of set A is now written -A instead of
paulson@5490
  1519
    Compl A.  The "Compl" syntax remains available as input syntax for this
paulson@5490
  1520
    release ONLY.
paulson@5490
  1521
wenzelm@5127
  1522
* HOL/Update: new theory of function updates:
wenzelm@5127
  1523
    f(a:=b) == %x. if x=a then b else f x
wenzelm@5127
  1524
may also be iterated as in f(a:=b,c:=d,...);
nipkow@5077
  1525
wenzelm@5127
  1526
* HOL/Vimage: new theory for inverse image of a function, syntax f-``B;
paulson@4899
  1527
nipkow@5282
  1528
* HOL/List:
nipkow@5282
  1529
  - new function list_update written xs[i:=v] that updates the i-th
nipkow@5282
  1530
    list position. May also be iterated as in xs[i:=a,j:=b,...].
nipkow@5428
  1531
  - new function `upt' written [i..j(] which generates the list
nipkow@5428
  1532
    [i,i+1,...,j-1], i.e. the upper bound is excluded. To include the upper
nipkow@5428
  1533
    bound write [i..j], which is a shorthand for [i..j+1(].
nipkow@5282
  1534
  - new lexicographic orderings and corresponding wellfoundedness theorems.
paulson@4779
  1535
wenzelm@5127
  1536
* HOL/Arith:
wenzelm@5127
  1537
  - removed 'pred' (predecessor) function;
wenzelm@5127
  1538
  - generalized some theorems about n-1;
wenzelm@5127
  1539
  - many new laws about "div" and "mod";
wenzelm@5127
  1540
  - new laws about greatest common divisors (see theory ex/Primes);
oheimb@4766
  1541
wenzelm@5127
  1542
* HOL/Relation: renamed the relational operator r^-1 "converse"
wenzelm@4842
  1543
instead of "inverse";
wenzelm@4711
  1544
nipkow@5651
  1545
* HOL/Induct/Multiset: a theory of multisets, including the wellfoundedness
nipkow@5651
  1546
  of the multiset ordering;
nipkow@5651
  1547
wenzelm@5127
  1548
* directory HOL/Real: a construction of the reals using Dedekind cuts
nipkow@5651
  1549
  (not included by default);
nipkow@4835
  1550
wenzelm@5127
  1551
* directory HOL/UNITY: Chandy and Misra's UNITY formalism;
wenzelm@4711
  1552
nipkow@5651
  1553
* directory HOL/Hoare: a new version of Hoare logic which permits many-sorted
nipkow@5651
  1554
  programs, i.e. different program variables may have different types.
nipkow@5651
  1555
paulson@5142
  1556
* calling (stac rew i) now fails if "rew" has no effect on the goal
paulson@5142
  1557
  [previously, this check worked only if the rewrite rule was unconditional]
paulson@5308
  1558
  Now rew can involve either definitions or equalities (either == or =).

*** ZF ***
paulson@4879
  1562
paulson@5332
  1563
* theory Main includes everything; INCOMPATIBILITY: theory ZF.thy contains
paulson@5332
  1564
  only the theorems proved on ZF.ML;
paulson@5160
  1565
paulson@5475
  1566
* ZF INCOMPATIBILITY: rule `equals0D' is now a well-formed destruct rule;
paulson@5475
  1567
  It and 'sym RS equals0D' are now in the default  claset, giving automatic
paulson@5475
  1568
  disjointness reasoning but breaking a few old proofs.
paulson@5267
  1569
paulson@5160
  1570
* ZF/Update: new theory of function updates
paulson@5160
  1571
    with default rewrite rule  f(x:=y) ` z = if(z=x, y, f`z)
paulson@5160
  1572

paulson@5308
  1578
  Now rew can involve either definitions or equalities (either == or =).
paulson@5142
  1579
paulson@5160
  1580
* case_tac provided for compatibility with HOL
paulson@5160

*** Internal programming interfaces ***
wenzelm@5002
  1585
wenzelm@5251
  1586
* Pure: several new basic modules made available for general use, see
wenzelm@5251
  1587
also src/Pure/README;
wenzelm@5207
  1588
wenzelm@5008
  1589
* improved the theory data mechanism to support encapsulation (data
wenzelm@5008
  1590
kind name replaced by private Object.kind, acting as authorization
wenzelm@5373
  1591
key); new type-safe user interface via functor TheoryDataFun; generic
wenzelm@5373
  1592
print_data function becomes basically useless;
wenzelm@5002
  1593
wenzelm@5251
  1594
* removed global_names compatibility flag -- all theory declarations
wenzelm@5251
  1595
are qualified by default;
wenzelm@5251
  1596
wenzelm@5085
  1597
* module Pure/Syntax now offers quote / antiquote translation
wenzelm@5085
  1598

  1599
see HOL/ex/Antiquote for an example use;
wenzelm@5085
  1600
wenzelm@5127
  1601
* Simplifier now offers conversions (asm_)(full_)rewrite: simpset ->
wenzelm@5127
  1602
cterm -> thm;
wenzelm@5127
  1603
wenzelm@5207
  1604
* new tactical CHANGED_GOAL for checking that a tactic modifies a
wenzelm@5207
  1605
subgoal;
paulson@5142
  1606
wenzelm@5251
  1607
* Display.print_goals function moved to Locale.print_goals;

  1609
* standard print function for goals supports current_goals_markers
wenzelm@5731

  1620
*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES (see below for more details) ***
wenzelm@4410
  1621
wenzelm@4410
  1622
* changed lexical syntax of terms / types: dots made part of long
wenzelm@4410
  1623
identifiers, e.g. "%x.x" no longer possible, should be "%x. x";
wenzelm@4410
  1624
wenzelm@4410
  1625
* simpset (and claset) reference variable replaced by functions
wenzelm@4410
  1626
simpset / simpset_ref;
wenzelm@4410
  1627
wenzelm@4410
  1628
* no longer supports theory aliases (via merge) and non-trivial
wenzelm@4410
  1629
implicit merge of thms' signatures;
wenzelm@4410
  1630
wenzelm@4410
  1631
* most internal names of constants changed due to qualified names;
wenzelm@4410
  1632
wenzelm@4410
  1633
* changed Pure/Sequence interface (see Pure/seq.ML);

paulson@3715
  1636
*** General Changes ***
paulson@3715
  1637
wenzelm@4174
  1638
* hierachically structured name spaces (for consts, types, axms, thms
wenzelm@3943
  1639
etc.); new lexical class 'longid' (e.g. Foo.bar.x) may render much of
wenzelm@4108
  1640
old input syntactically incorrect (e.g. "%x.x"); COMPATIBILITY:
wenzelm@4108
  1641
isatool fixdots ensures space after dots (e.g. "%x. x"); set
wenzelm@4174
  1642
long_names for fully qualified output names; NOTE: ML programs
wenzelm@4174
  1643
(special tactics, packages etc.) referring to internal names may have
wenzelm@4174
  1644
to be adapted to cope with fully qualified names; in case of severe
wenzelm@4174
  1645
backward campatibility problems try setting 'global_names' at compile
wenzelm@4174
  1646
time to have enrything declared within a flat name space; one may also
wenzelm@4174
  1647
fine tune name declarations in theories via the 'global' and 'local'
wenzelm@4174
  1648
section;
wenzelm@4108
  1649
wenzelm@4108
  1650
* reimplemented the implicit simpset and claset using the new anytype
wenzelm@4108
  1651
data filed in signatures; references simpset:simpset ref etc. are
wenzelm@4108
  1652
replaced by functions simpset:unit->simpset and
wenzelm@4108
  1653
simpset_ref:unit->simpset ref; COMPATIBILITY: use isatool fixclasimp
wenzelm@4108
  1654
to patch your ML files accordingly;
paulson@3856
  1655
wenzelm@3857
  1656
* HTML output now includes theory graph data for display with Java
wenzelm@3857
  1657
applet or isatool browser; data generated automatically via isatool
wenzelm@3901
  1658
usedir (see -i option, ISABELLE_USEDIR_OPTIONS);
wenzelm@3857
  1659
paulson@3856
  1660
* defs may now be conditional; improved rewrite_goals_tac to handle
paulson@3856
  1661
conditional equations;
paulson@3856
  1662
wenzelm@4174
  1663
* defs now admits additional type arguments, using TYPE('a) syntax;
wenzelm@4174
  1664
wenzelm@3901
  1665
* theory aliases via merge (e.g. M=A+B+C) no longer supported, always
wenzelm@3901
  1666
creates a new theory node; implicit merge of thms' signatures is
wenzelm@4112
  1667
restricted to 'trivial' ones; COMPATIBILITY: one may have to use
wenzelm@3901
  1668
transfer:theory->thm->thm in (rare) cases;
wenzelm@3901
  1669
wenzelm@3968
  1670
* improved handling of draft signatures / theories; draft thms (and

wenzelm@3968
  1672
wenzelm@3901
  1673
* slightly changed interfaces for oracles: admit many per theory, named

wenzelm@3901
  1677
show_types);
wenzelm@3851
  1678
wenzelm@4388
  1679

wenzelm@4269
  1694
wenzelm@4269

  1697
qualified references to the Sequence structure only!);
wenzelm@4269
  1698

  1720
* added prems argument to simplification procedures;
paulson@3715
  1721
paulson@4325
  1722
* HOL, FOL, ZF: added infix function `addsplits':
paulson@4325
  1723
  instead of `<simpset> setloop (split_tac <thms>)'
paulson@4325
  1724

  - `pred n' is automatically converted to `n-1'.
nipkow@4361
  1788
    Users are strongly encouraged not to use `pred' any longer,

nipkow@4361
  1790
  - Users are strongly encouraged to write "0 < n" rather than
nipkow@4361

    "n ~= 0". Theorems and proof tools have been modified towards this
nipkow@4361
  1792
    `standard'.

nipkow@4502
  1794
* HOL/Lists:
nipkow@4502
  1795
  the function "set_of_list" has been renamed "set" (and its theorems too);
nipkow@4502
  1796
  the function "nth" now takes its arguments in the reverse order and

paulson@3002
  1845
*** General Changes ***
paulson@3002
  1846
paulson@3002
  1847
* new utilities to build / run / maintain Isabelle etc. (in parts
paulson@3002
  1848
still somewhat experimental); old Makefiles etc. still functional;
wenzelm@2971
  1849
wenzelm@3205
  1850
* new 'Isabelle System Manual';
wenzelm@3205
  1851
wenzelm@2825
  1852
* INSTALL text, together with ./configure and ./build scripts;
wenzelm@2773
  1853
wenzelm@3006
  1854
* reimplemented type inference for greater efficiency, better error
wenzelm@3006
  1855
messages and clean internal interface;
paulson@3002
  1856
paulson@3002
  1857
* prlim command for dealing with lots of subgoals (an easier way of
paulson@3002
  1858
setting goals_limit);
paulson@3002
  1859
wenzelm@3006
  1860
wenzelm@3006
  1861
*** Syntax ***
paulson@3002
  1862
wenzelm@3116
  1863
* supports alternative (named) syntax tables (parser and pretty
wenzelm@3116
  1864
printer); internal interface is provided by add_modesyntax(_i);
wenzelm@3116
  1865
paulson@3002
  1866
* Pure, FOL, ZF, HOL, HOLCF now support symbolic input and output; to
paulson@3002
  1867
be used in conjunction with the Isabelle symbol font; uses the
paulson@3002
  1868
"symbols" syntax table;
paulson@3002
  1869
wenzelm@2705
  1870
* added token_translation interface (may translate name tokens in
wenzelm@2756
  1871
arbitrary ways, dependent on their type (free, bound, tfree, ...) and
wenzelm@3116
  1872
the current print_mode); IMPORTANT: user print translation functions
wenzelm@3116
  1873
are responsible for marking newly introduced bounds
wenzelm@3116
  1874
(Syntax.mark_boundT);
wenzelm@2705
  1875
wenzelm@2730
  1876
* token translations for modes "xterm" and "xterm_color" that display
wenzelm@3006
  1877
names in bold, underline etc. or colors (which requires a color
wenzelm@3006
  1878
version of xterm);
wenzelm@2730
  1879
paulson@3002
  1880
* infixes may now be declared with names independent of their syntax;
paulson@3002
  1881
paulson@3002
  1882
* added typed_print_translation (like print_translation, but may
paulson@3002

paulson@3002
  1889
some limitations.  Blast_tac...
paulson@3002
  1890
  + ignores addss, addbefore, addafter; this restriction is intrinsic
paulson@3002
  1891
  + ignores elimination rules that don't have the correct format
wenzelm@5726
  1892
        (the conclusion MUST be a formula variable)
paulson@3002
  1893
  + ignores types, which can make HOL proofs fail
paulson@3002
  1894
  + rules must not require higher-order unification, e.g. apply_type in ZF
paulson@3002
  1895
    [message "Function Var's argument not a bound variable" relates to this]

  1896
  + its proof strategy is more general but can actually be slower
paulson@3002
  1897
wenzelm@3107
  1898

wenzelm@3107
  1899
assumptions;
paulson@3002
  1900
paulson@3002
  1901
* minor changes in semantics of addafter (now called addaltern); renamed
paulson@3002
  1902
setwrapper to setWrapper and compwrapper to compWrapper; added safe wrapper
wenzelm@3107
  1903
(and access functions for it);
paulson@3002
  1904
wenzelm@5726
  1905
* improved combination of classical reasoner and simplifier:
oheimb@3317
  1906
  + functions for handling clasimpsets
oheimb@3317
  1907
  + improvement of addss: now the simplifier is called _after_ the
oheimb@3317
  1908
    safe steps.
oheimb@3317
  1909
  + safe variant of addss called addSss: uses safe simplifications
wenzelm@5726
  1910
    _during_ the safe steps. It is more complete as it allows multiple
oheimb@3317
  1911
    instantiations of unknowns (e.g. with slow_tac).

paulson@3002
  1913
*** Simplifier ***
paulson@3002
  1914
wenzelm@3006
  1915
* added interface for simplification procedures (functions that
wenzelm@3006

produce *proven* rewrite rules on the fly, depending on current
wenzelm@3006
  1917
redex);
wenzelm@3006
  1918
wenzelm@3006
  1919
* ordering on terms as parameter (used for ordered rewriting);
wenzelm@3006
  1920
wenzelm@3107
  1921
* new functions delcongs, deleqcongs, and Delcongs. richer rep_ss;
paulson@3002
  1922
paulson@3002
  1923
* the solver is now split into a safe and an unsafe part.
paulson@3002
  1924
This should be invisible for the normal user, except that the
paulson@3002
  1925
functions setsolver and addsolver have been renamed to setSolver and
wenzelm@3107
  1926
addSolver; added safe_asm_full_simp_tac;

wenzelm@5726
  1967
  + axiomatic type classes instead of classes
slotosch@2653
  1968
  + typedef instead of faking type definitions
paulson@2747
  1969
  + eliminated the internal constants less_fun, less_cfun, UU_fun, UU_cfun etc.
wenzelm@2730
  1970
  + new axclasses cpo, chfin, flat with flat < chfin < pcpo < cpo < po
slotosch@2653
  1971
  + eliminated the types void, one, tr
slotosch@2653
  1972
  + use unit lift and bool lift (with translations) instead of one and tr
slotosch@2653
  1973
  + eliminated blift from Lift3.thy (use Def instead of blift)

quantifications in as far as possible (COULD MAKE EXISTING PROOFS
wenzelm@2554
  1994

  2019
external reasoners, which may deliver results as theorems;
wenzelm@2554
  2020

paulson@2557
  2054
wenzelm@5726
  2055
* searchable theorem database (see the section "Retrieving theorems" on
paulson@2557
  2056
page 8 of the Reference Manual);
paulson@2557
  2057
paulson@2557
  2058

paulson@2557
  2059
Axiom of Choice;
paulson@2557
  2060
paulson@2557
  2061
* The previous version of HOL renamed to Old_HOL;
paulson@2557
  2062
wenzelm@5726
  2063
* The new version of HOL (previously called CHOL) uses a curried syntax
paulson@2557
  2064
for functions.  Application looks like f a b instead of f(a,b);
paulson@2557
  2065
paulson@2557
  2066
* Mutually recursive inductive definitions finally work in HOL;
paulson@2557
  2067
paulson@2557
  2068
* In ZF, pattern-matching on tuples is now available in all abstractions and
paulson@2557

  2075
wenzelm@5726
  2076
* new infix operator, addss, allowing the classical reasoner to
paulson@2557
  2077
perform simplification at each step of its search.  Example:
wenzelm@5726
  2078
        fast_tac (cs addss ss)
paulson@2557
  2079
wenzelm@5726
  2080
* a new logic, CHOL, the same as HOL, but with a curried syntax
wenzelm@5726
  2081
for functions.  Application looks like f a b instead of f(a,b).  Also pairs
paulson@2557
  2082
look like (a,b) instead of <a,b>;
paulson@2557
  2083
paulson@2557
  2084
* PLEASE NOTE: CHOL will eventually replace HOL!
paulson@2557
  2085
paulson@2557
  2086
* In CHOL, pattern-matching on tuples is now available in all abstractions.
paulson@2557
  2087
It translates to the operator "split".  A new theory of integers is available;
paulson@2557
  2088
paulson@2557
  2089
* In ZF, integer numerals now denote two's-complement binary integers.
paulson@2557
  2090
Arithmetic operations can be performed by rewriting.  See ZF/ex/Bin.ML;
paulson@2557
  2091
wenzelm@5726

* Significantly faster resolution;
paulson@2557
  2101
paulson@2557
  2102
* the different sections in a .thy file can now be mixed and repeated
paulson@2557
  2103
freely;
paulson@2557
  2104
paulson@2557
  2105
* Database of theorems for FOL, HOL and ZF.  New
paulson@2557
  2106
commands including qed, qed_goal and bind_thm store theorems in the database.
paulson@2557
  2107
paulson@2557
  2108
* Simple database queries: return a named theorem (get_thm) or all theorems of
paulson@2557
  2109
a given theory (thms_of), or find out what theory a theorem was proved in
paulson@2557
  2110
(theory_of_thm);
paulson@2557
  2111
paulson@2557
  2112
* Bugs fixed in the inductive definition and datatype packages;
paulson@2557
  2113
paulson@2557
  2114
* The classical reasoner provides deepen_tac and depth_tac, making FOL_dup_cs
paulson@2557
  2115
and HOL_dup_cs obsolete;
paulson@2557
  2116
paulson@2557
  2117
* Syntactic ambiguities caused by the new treatment of syntax in Isabelle94-1
paulson@2557
  2118
have been removed;
paulson@2557
  2119
paulson@2557
